England Women will play their last home game before this summer’s Euros in Milton Keynes next month.

The Lionesses will take on Austria at Stadium MK on Monday 10 April (7.45pm KO).

Tickets for the game are on sale now priced £7.50 for adults and £3.50 for children. A family ticket (two adults and two children) is available at £15 and group booking and charter standard discounts apply.

The match is part of a double-header of send-off home games that England will play before the Euros.

The Lionesses will also face Italy at Port Vale’s Vale Park on Friday 7 April (7.45pm KO).

England last played Austria away in August 2010, winning 4-0 thanks to a brace from Kelly Smith and a goal apiece for Ellen White and Alex Scott.

Arsenal defender Scott said: “We’re really looking forward to this game, especially as it’s the last chance to play in front of our supporters before the Euros.

“We had such a good crowd for our match against USA and they really got behind us, so we hope we have the same against Austria.

“It’s important that we build momentum ahead of the tournament and these games are the perfect opportunity to do just that. We’ll be going all out for the win and hopefully it’ll be a really good game for our Lionesses supporters to come and watch.”

MK Dons Chairman Pete Winkelman said: "We are honoured and proud to be hosting our second England Women's fixture at Stadium MK.

"I’m sure it will be another fantastic occasion and we are all looking forward to welcoming The Lionesses back once again, especially in Milton Keynes' 50th anniversary year."

The Lionesses kick off their Euros campaign against Scotland in Utrecht on Wednesday 19 July. They then play Spain in Breda (23 July) and Portugal on Tilburg (27 July) in Group D.
