The Proact Stadium will host four games in the UEFA Women's European Under-17 Championship Finals, including the final.

After the tournament kicks off with England playing at AFC Telford United's New Bucks Head stadium on November 26, the young lionesses will play their next group match at the Proact on Tuesday, November 29 (kick-off 7pm).

Following a group match at the stadium on Monday, December 2, one of the semi-finals will also take place at the Proact on Thursday, December 5. The Proact will then stage the final on Sunday, December 8.

This will round off The Football Association's 150th anniversary celebrations, including marking 20 years of running the women's game.

The men's Under-21 and Under-19 teams have previously played at the Proact. Spireites chairman Dave Allen said: "We are delighted to once again be hosting international football. 

"It will be a great opportunity for fans in Chesterfield and the surrounding areas to watch some top women's football. It is an honour for the club to stage the final of the competition and we hope that people will turn out in numbers for the games."
