Early bird tickets are selling fast for England Lionesses' friendly with New Zealand at Brighton & Hove Albion's Amex Stadium on June 1 (1pm).

The game is England's final warm-up match before they leave for the Women's World Cup in France this summer.

Tickets are just £1 for concessions and £10 for adults, which is reduced to £7.50 if booked before March 10.

Albion chief executive and deputy chairman Paul Barber said: “We are absolutely delighted to be hosting another England international at our stadium.

“After hosting the World Cup qualifier against Montenegro almost five years ago, we saw the tremendous boost it had in helping to raise the profile of the women’s game across our region.

“We now have a proven track record of hosting England internationals at the stadium, having also welcomed the under-19s and under-21 teams.

“Hopefully we can attract as many fans from across the country as possible, and make it another occasion to remember.”

Cllr Alan Robins, chair of Brighton & Hove City Council’s Tourism committee, said: “We are extremely proud to be welcoming the Lionesses to the city as they prepare for their World Cup campaign.

“This is a great opportunity for fans of all ages to see the country’s top players in action and give them a great send off before they leave for France and the World Cup.”

Brighton & Hove Albion Women’s manager Hope Powell added: “To have a preparation game for England at the Amex is fantastic and as a club and as an FA we will be working hard to raise awareness that the game is on.

“It’s a great stadium and I’m sure that for both England and New Zealand it will be a privilege to play here.”

England begin their World Cup campaign against Scotland on June 9, before facing Argentina on June 14 and Japan on June 19.
