England take on the Netherlands in the semi-finals of the U17 Euros this evening, 7pm and all tickets for the match at the home of the Spireites are just £1.

England beat Norway 2-0 in the quarter-finals at Burton to reach the last four of the competition, thanks to goals from Bobby Duncan and Xavier Amaechi in front of over 5,000 fans. Meanwhile the Netherlands overcame the Republic of Ireland 5-4 on penalties on Monday night, following a 1-1 draw in normal time.

UEFA and The Football Association have made all tickets for the semi-final just £1 for all and have encouraged fans to come out and support the Young Lions as they aim to reach the final at Rotherham on Sunday.

With the tournament already being a major success, with combined attendances reaching over 40,000 so far, The FA has been working alongside local schools to engage children in the area.

England head coach Steve Cooper said: “I know the people who have been managing the tournament have wanted it to be affordable for families and children. That has definitely been reflected in the crowds we've got for England matches.

"We had a fantastic turnout at our opening group game at Chesterfield. It was a brilliant atmosphere and we’re really grateful for the support.

“Chesterfield is a great venue and we’re really looking forward to playing there again on Thursday. Hopefully we can get another strong attendance for the semi-final."

Tickets are on sale now for £1 via www.thefa.com or at the Chesterfield FC Club Superstore, right up until kick off.
