England will welcome Belgium to the home of Leicester City in the UEFA Women’s Nations League on Friday 27 October.

The 7.45pm match, which will be broadcast across ITV channels, will be the first time the Lionesses have played in the East Midlands city since a 1-1 draw with Sweden on 17 September 1980.

The Lionesses’ home fixture with the Red Flames will be followed four days later with the return fixture in Leuven.

The England-Belgium double-header will mark both teams’ third and fourth games in the inaugural Nations League with the competition beginning the previous month.

Tickets for the fixture will go on sale to My England Football members on Friday 11 August and on general sale on Tuesday 15 August. Sign up to My England Football before Friday to access the priority window.

Sarina Wiegman’s squad start the campaign with their first post-FIFA Women’s World Cup match on Friday 22 September at home to Scotland at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light before facing the Netherlands away in Utrecht on Tuesday 26 September.

The final matches in the group will be played on 1 and 5 December respectively with England first welcoming the Netherlands to a yet-to-be confirmed venue before making the short trip north of the border to Scotland.

The team that tops the four-team section will progress to the Nations League finals between 21-28 February. Two semi-finals will be played before a showpiece match to determine the overall winners.
