England U21s will play a key U21 EURO qualifier in Milton Keynes this autumn.

The Young Lions will take on Austria at the Stadium MK on Tuesday 15 October (7.45pm) as Aidy Boothroyd's team continue their quest to reach the next U21 EURO Finals in 2021.

The U21s last played in Milton Keynes back in November 2013, when Gareth Southgate's team cruised to victory against Finland, thanks to a brace from Saido Berahino and a goal from Michael Keane in their qualifying campaign for the 2015 edition of the U21 EURO.

And more recently, the England Women's senior team also recorded a 3-0 win at the venue, ironically against Austria, in 2017 with goals from Ellen White, Lucy Bronze and Isobel Christiansen.

Tickets are now on sale for the game priced £1 for children (U16) and with an adult early bird ticket available at £10 until 19 August (Standard ticket £15).

Concessions (under 22 and over 65) are available at £5 and Charter Standard and group booking discounts also apply.

MK Dons chairman Pete Winkelman said: “We are thrilled to be welcoming the Young Lions back to Milton Keynes this October – the perfect way to kick-off the celebrations of Milton Keynes as a European City of Sport for 2020.

“This match will add to the long list of special events we have had the pleasure of hosting here at Stadium MK, while it will provide a fantastic opportunity for the people of Milton Keynes to see the young stars of the future in action on their doorstep.”

England begin their campaign in September with an away fixture against Turkey in Sakarya (Friday 6 September). They will then play their first home qualifier against Kosovo at the KCOM Stadium in Hull on Monday 9 September (7.45pm KO).

Before the Austria game, England will travel to Maribor where they will face Slovenia, joint hosts of the 2021 EURO along with Hungary, at Ljudski vrt Stadium on Friday 11 October.
