Sometimes they don't want people to attend those games, hence no details given. I have asked them because I dont want to travel and get kicked out as they do.

Dear Sylvain, Thanks for your email.  Get lost.  Yours sincerely the FA :)
It's already been previewed by the NFF and we can read about the match in the foreign papers.  Well done the blazers!
Sport is a very personal thing and on one level spectators are always spurious.  Why are they not playing sports themselves? . . . but it's difficult to believe that the FA really believes that :)

LOL, been at many matches where I've felt like an intruder. But this is a national team match, they beg people to come to the senior team matches.

Any age group national team matches they have deigned to allow people to watch have always had a team of high viz jacketed security watching over the crowd.
 
I saw the U15 team at Holmes Park Leicester in 2011, the U17 at Bishops Stortford in 2008, the U19 at Woking in 2005 and Rushden in 2006

Maybe the security 'issues' were too difficult this time.

It just reminded me of a game played in Staines in 2009 between Denmark seniors and Iceland seniors. I was there taking pictures and notes and some chaps from the FA came during the game and started asking questions on why we were there etc making us very uncomfortable. Suffice to say we moved away from the seats at half time.

The set-up in that university is not really made for crowd control, so maybe they don't want to end up with a big crowd and no security  :P

If you put 52.375809,-1.568141 on google map, you can see the pitches on the satellite picture.

If the matches are at Warwick they can stop no-one, just watch from the road above the pitch. Public highway.

You never know with the FA, that is what I thought as well, but they have some kind of bodyguards who are not friendly at all when you attend a behind close door game.
I would go but too easily recognisable by FA people unfortunately.

They have no power outside the ground, you can stand on the public road without being harrassed by the FA and their bouncers.

There is a line of trees between the road and the pitches sadly, if you look on google map's street view in one of my previous post the pitch coordinates are there.

Do they even scout correctly? 3 Sub National League players. Surely there are better players not even looked at this year. The knowledge is awful.

Well the scouting system lol that camp serves also as a Team GB preparation for the Universiades apparently hence all Combination/Northern and Southern division players.

England Norway today
« Reply #276 on: June 25, 2013, 03:46:04 PM »
The secret match is today.  The Norwegian press has blown the gaff and England-Norway U-23s is at 17.00 in Coventry.

Final result: England 0 Norway 2.

There were 50 spectators according to the NFF, I don't know if that is a major failure by the FA and its bouncers :) . . if I had known that I might have gone there as well.

There is a U23 camp coming soon, the best players from the U19 euros in Wales will join the older ones born after 1990.
