International football is returning to Chesterfield after the FA announced that the B2Net would feature as host venue for a major tournament.
Chesterfield, along with Burton Albion, AFC Telford United and Hinckley United, will host games as part of the 2014 UEFA European Women’s Under-17 Championship Finals.
It will see a continental tournament on these shores for the first time since 2005, when the UEFA European Women’s Championship was held in the north-west of England.
A total of 117,384 spectators attended the 15 matches in Manchester, Blackpool, Warrington, Preston and Blackburn with the opening game – England’s thrilling 3-2 victory against Finland at the City of Manchester Stadium on Sunday 5 June – attracting 29,092 fans.
Chesterfield chief executive Chris Turner said: “We are delighted that the FA has chosen the B2net Stadium as one of the host venues for this prestigious European competition and we are confident that football fans in North Derbyshire will give it their full support.”
The B2Net will also host this season’s final of the Derbyshire County FA Senior Challenge Cup between Buxton FC and Derby County FC, which will be held on Wednesday 25 April, kick-off 7.45pm.
Admission prices: Adults £9, Concessions for U16s & Senior Citizens £4. It’s all pay at the turnstiles on the night.
