B2net Stadium: Will entertain international fixture
Chesterfield's B2net Stadium will be the venue when England Under-21's resume their Euro 2013 qualification campaign.
Stuart Pearce, back in charge of the Young Lions after his temporary spell as head coach of the senior side, will take his table-topping team to Derbyshire on September 10 against Norway.
The U21s face a double header in September - following a six-month break from competitive action - as they travel to Azerbaijan before meeting Norway, who they have already defeated 2-1 in Drammen.
With two games to go for England in Group 8, Pearce's team sit seven points clear of second placed Belgium, who have played the same number of games.
Last October Kenny Swain's U16s beat Northern Ireland 3-1 in the Victory Shield at Chesterfield, drawing a crowd of over 4,000, while nearly 10,000 turned out for the first international at the B2net Stadium against Germany's U19s in February 2011.
Spireites chief executive Chris Turner said: "This will be Chesterfield's biggest night yet of international football so we are delighted the FA has chosen the B2net Stadium to host the UEFA 2013 European Under-21 Championship qualifier between England and Norway."
