Staffordshire is celebrating the roaring success of England’s Lionesses as they make history securing their place in the FIFA Women’s World Cup Final.

As the proud home of the Lionesses’ training ground, Staffordshire rejoices at the team’s triumph after they took on co-hosts Australia in the semi-final and won 3-1.

The Lionesses will now go head-to-head with Spain in the World Cup Final on Sunday.

Staffordshire County Council will fly the England flag for the Lionesses from the Shire Hall in the run-up to the big game this week.

St George’s Park and the National Football Association Burton was built in 2012 and is set in 330-acres of stunning Staffordshire countryside.  It’s the home of England’s national football teams.

The venue has 14 outdoor pitches, including a replica of the Wembley surface, where the teams fine-tune their skills.

Newcastle-under-Lyme is also flying the flag in support of England’s Lionesses.

The Cross of St George is flying in Queens Gardens outside the Borough Council’s Castle House headquarters.

It will remain proudly in place until after Sunday’s football World Cup final between England and Spain.
