England v France, Colovray Stadium, Nyon, Switzerland
Forty UEFA member associations set out on the road to the UEFA European U17 Women's Championship final tournament, with two qualifying rounds played to decide the four final-round teams; Denmark, England, France and Germany.
Those four teams have now qualified for the first FIFA U17 Women's World Cup in New Zealand between 28 October and 16 November this year.
A major promotional drive is underway in order to attract a maximum number of spectators to the stadium. "We hope to profit from the enthusiasm generated by UEFA EURO 2008™ among the local population," Negroni explained. The EURO final round in Switzerland and Austria begins on 7 June, and nearby Geneva is one of the eight venues.
Training grounds have been found in the nearby town of Morges, with promotional work involving the sending of more than 400 letters to football clubs, schools and tourist offices in the region, as well as in neighbouring areas in France.
Posters and tournament programmes are also being prepared in abundance and entry to matches will be free of charge, with 5,000 tickets available for each encounter.
The winners of the final (kick-off 13:00 local time) will be presented with the trophy by Michel Platini in the stand immediately after the match. "We would urge as many people as possible to come along to the matches and create a great atmosphere for the players," said Negroni.
