Roy Hogdson - England squad announcement

England manager Roy Hodgson will announce his squad for the FIFA 2014 World Cup from England team sponsor Vauxhall headquarters on Monday 12 May. Mr Hodgson will travel to Vauxhall's Griffin House HQ in Luton – where many of the car manufacturers' employees are based – on an extremely significant day in the sporting calendar.

 

Mr Hodgson will name his squad for the FIFA 2014 World Cup in Brazil where England face Group D opponents Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica.

 

Marketing director of Vauxhall Motors Peter Hope said: “We are delighted to be welcoming the England manager to Griffin House on such an iconic day in England’s World Cup campaign.

 

“For our employees to be engaged in such a big day in the England team calendar is very exciting and we look forward to welcoming all of the media to Vauxhall HQ.”

 

Club England managing director Adrian Bevington said: "We have enjoyed an extremely close relationship with Vauxhall since they became England team sponsor three years ago, and this is a fine example of that.

 

"This will be an important day for Roy and the players ahead of an exciting summer in Brazil. It is always a day of interest to the whole country, and we're glad we can share it with Vauxhall."

Proud sponsor of Home Nations Football

Vauxhall is proud sponsor of Home Nations Football and we have confirmed our commitment in the UK as lead partner for the England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales teams until the end of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

 

The announcement will be the second time that England manager Roy Hodgson has visited Vauxhall’s Luton headquarters. The last occasion was when he previewed England's trip to Brazil last year.

Enter the lions’ den!
