The England Supporters Club gives members priority access to tickets and other exclusive rewards and competitions.

From dinner with an England legend to a VIP tour of St. George’s Park with goalscoring great Michael Owen, ten daily competitions will run across official social media and digital channels.

What’s more, everyone who signs up at before 24 April will enter a draw to win one of 10 signed England shirts or one of 100 pairs of tickets for the European Qualifier against Switzerland at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday 8 September.

There will also be the chance to relive classic Three Lions memories with the countdown to England’s top ten moments, as voted for by members of the Supporters Club in a recent survey.

VIDEO: Gary Cahill's passion for England

England vice-captain and Chelsea defender Gary Cahill lent his support to the campaign by filming an emotive video that highlights the united passion between Three Lions players and fans. 

The campaign will culminate in two events on St. George’s Day as part of the Together for England Roadshow. Three Lions representatives will be in attendance at both St. George’s Park and the village of St. George’s in Somerset using the beautiful game to celebrate England’s national day.

As well as being encouraged to wear red and white to mark the occasion, hundreds of local youngsters will be put through their paces by FA Skills coaches at each venue before being given an insight into what it takes to pull on an England shirt at international level.

The Together for England Roadshow is a nationwide drive aimed at strengthening the national team’s relationship with clubs, local communities and current and future Three Lions fans.

Following on from the release of the England DNA philosophy, a series of monthly events will look to encourage a consistent thread of national pride aimed at creating a better England, both on and off the field.
