England will host Italy at Wembley Stadium early next year in The Heads Up International on Friday 27 March 2020 (8pm kick-off).
The fixture will be the first of four tests to help the Three Lions prepare for next summer’s UEFA EURO 2020.
The occasion has also been designated to the Heads Up campaign in support of our charitable partnership with HRH The Duke of Cambridge’s Heads Together mental health initiative.
It will be our 28th encounter with the four-time world champions and exactly two years to the day since the last meeting – a 1-1 draw at Wembley.
The Azzurri, UEFA EURO 1968 winners, have been placed in Group A at next summer’s finals and Roberto Mancini's men will play all three games against Turkey, Switzerland and Wales in Rome.
England had already booked a date with fellow finalists Denmark at Wembley on Tuesday 31 March (8pm).
The Three Lions will then travel to the Ernst Happel Stadion in Vienna to face Austria on Tuesday 2 June (7.45pm kick-off UK time) before hosting Romania on Sunday 7 June (kick-off TBC) at a venue in England that is still to be confirmed.
Gareth Southgate’s squad know they will face Croatia and Czech Republic in Group D at UEFA EURO 2020 as well as the winner of the play-off path featuring Scotland, Israel, Norway and Serbia.
All three fixtures will be played at Wembley with dates set for Sunday 14 June (2pm kick-off v Croatia), Friday 19 June (8pm kick-off v TBC) and Tuesday 23 June (8pm v Czech Republic).TICKETS: ENGLAND V DENMARK
