England’s fixture against Euro 2016 hosts France at Wembley Stadium connected by EE on Tuesday 17 November will boost The FA’s official charity partner, Breast Cancer Care.

The match – to be called ‘A Breast Cancer Care international’ – will be the highlight of The FA’s two-year partnership with the charity and will see their distinctive pink colour given prominence at the national stadium. 

The visit of France will be their first trip to Wembley since November 2010, which Les Bleus won 2-1, while the two teams last met in a 1-1 group-stage draw at Euro 2012 in Ukraine.

England were the first team to qualify for the finals and are expected to take thousands of their official England Supporters Travel Club members across the Channel when the action gets under way in June. 

On the night, The FA will present Breast Cancer Care with a cheque for £75,000 having donated the same amount from its FA Community Shield Fund when England Women played a historic Wembley fixture against Germany in November 2014. 

Fans wanting to show their support can make a donation on the night or indeed when they purchase their tickets via TheFA.com.

FA staff chose Breast Cancer Care as their official charity partner back in summer 2014 and have committed to raising vital funds and awareness of the disease. 

That commitment was recently backed by England stars who featured in a special video to highlight the charity’s viral #PassItOn campaign. 

The Three Lions also helped to launch a new nationwide roadshow at St. George’s Park with the mobile service set to tour 38 locations to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer in local communities.

Commenting on the news England captain and newly crowned record goalscorer Wayne Rooney said: “It will be great that such a high-profile match against strong opposition will be in aid of Breast Cancer Care.

“Most people know someone who has been affected by this terrible disease and I am sure our fans will appreciate what The FA is trying to do to promote such a worthy cause. 

"Charities like Breast Cancer Care give so much support and comfort to so many people and it is great that we can put them in the spotlight in this way at Wembley.”

Samia al Qadhi, Chief Executive at Breast Cancer Care, said: “We’re thrilled The FA will support Breast Cancer Care at such a prominent England match at Wembley. 

"The funds raised through our partnership will enable us to help people affected by breast cancer with care, support and information from day one.

“Knowing what warning signs to look for can lead to earlier detection of breast cancer. This can be crucial in providing more effective treatment and, ultimately, saving lives.” 

Every year around 42,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer in England – that’s the equivalent of more than 100 people a day. This is predicted to rise to almost 50,000 by 2020.
