Bournemouth will host England Women’s opening 2015 World Cup qualifier against Belarus in September, a game you can watch live on the BBC.
The Three Lions will be aiming to make it to their third successive World Cup Finals after reaching the last eight in both 2007 and 2011.
Five days after the Belarus game, England will entertain Turkey in their second qualifier, a venue for which will be confirmed in due course.
England faced Belarus twice in qualifying for Euro 2009. Two goals from Alex Scott, who won her 100th cap against Russia on Monday, helped guide us to a 4-0 win at Walsall in October 2007, while Fara Williams bagged a hat-trick en route to a comfortable 6-1 victory in Minsk seven months later.
Wales, Montenegro and Ukraine complete the Group 6 line-up.
Canada will stage the 2015 World Cup, which will have an increased pool of 24 teams.
