England men’s football team is being sent good luck wishes by Staffordshire County Council ahead of their first game of Euro 24 in Germany on Sunday.

County council leader Alan White said the county was proud to host the team at St George’s Park ahead of the tournament.

England will kick-off their first group match against Serbia on Sunday evening.

St George’s Park is one of Staffordshire’s main attractions and was opened by the FA in 2012. It’s set in 330 acres of countryside near Burton and is home to all 23 of England’s national football teams.

Alan White said:

On behalf of everyone in Staffordshire I wish England good luck on Sunday and for the rest of the tournament.

We’re proud that as a county we host all England teams at the fantastic St George’s Park, and that the FA chose Staffordshire as its national centre.

It’s one of our main attractions with excellent facilities which are used not just by the country’s sporting stars but by communities nationally.

We know it’ll have given England a fitting send-off and with the best preparation.”

St George’s Park has an exact replica of the Wembley surface, numerous training and physio facilities and a 228-bedroom hotel.

England move on to play Denmark and Slovenia in their other group games.
