Roy Hodgson is set to announce his England squad for the 2014 World Cup on Monday 12 May.

The Three Lions manager will travel to England sponsors Vauxhall's Griffin House HQ in Luton where he will address employees and field questions from the media.

Club England managing director Adrian Bevington said: "We have enjoyed an extremely close relationship with Vauxhall since they became England Team Sponsor three years ago, and this is a fine example of that.

"This will be an important day for Roy and the players ahead of an exciting summer in Brazil. It is always a day of interest to the whole country, and we're glad we can share it with Vauxhall."

Marketing director of Vauxhall Motors Peter Hope said: “We are delighted to be welcoming the England manager to Griffin House on such an iconic day in England’s World Cup campaign.

“For our employees to be engaged in such a big day in the England team calendar is very exciting and we look forward to welcoming all of the media to Vauxhall HQ.”

Vauxhall is the proud sponsor of Home Nations Football and has confirmed its commitment in the UK as lead partner of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales until the end of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The announcement will be the second time that England manager Roy Hodgson has visited Vauxhall’s Luton Headquarters, after he previewed England's trip to Brazil last year.
