The Three Lions face trips to Old Trafford and Hampden Park as fixture details confirmed for 2023


England will begin the road to UEFA EURO 2024 next year and Old Trafford will be the venue for the fixture against North Macedonia on Monday 19 June 2023 (7.45pm kick-off).

That qualifying campaign will now be complemented by a 150th Anniversary Heritage Match against Scotland at Hampden Park on Tuesday 12 September 2023 (7.45pm kick-off).

England were drawn alongside Italy, Ukraine, North Macedonia and Malta in a five-team qualifying group allowing scope for a commemorative celebration of international football’s oldest fixture in Glasgow.

Before then, the qualifier against North Macedonia will be the first time in over 16 years that Old Trafford has staged a men’s international. Since 1926, the Three Lions have played at the home of Manchester United on 17 previous occasions with the last of those being a 1-0 defeat to Spain in February 2007. The iconic venue, nicknamed the Theatre of Dreams, was also the sold-out starting point of England Women’s run to being crowned European champions this summer.

England will begin the UEFA EURO 2024 qualifying campaign with a trip to Italy before returning to Wembley Stadium connected by EE to face Ukraine on Sunday 26 March 2023 (5pm kick-off).

Fans can now also look forward to a re-run against the Three Lions’ oldest opponents ahead of a key milestone, with this month set to mark the 150th anniversary of Scotland v England and the start of international football.

On 30 November 1872, the two sides played out a 0-0 draw at Hamilton Crescent in the Partick area of Glasgow. 150 years later, football’s longest rivalry will enter its 116th chapter at Hampden Park.

“Any meeting with Scotland is always special," said England boss Gareth Southgate.

"I imagine though that this occasion will be even more memorable as it celebrates such a landmark moment. Of course, ourselves and Scotland are the oldest of rivals and passions are sure to be high at Hampden but this milestone is much bigger than our two nations as it’s also an opportunity to celebrate 150 years of international football.

“As we have been fortunate enough to experience across the last two major tournaments and hopefully again this winter, the international game has a unique power to bring people together and we should all feel honoured to have the opportunity to reflect on that.”

An additional international fixture is set to be added to England’s schedule for October 2023.
