Fulham Football Club’s Craven Cottage will host a World Cup warm-up friendly match between Colombia and Australia on Tuesday 27th March (8pm).

Colombia and Australia have both qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup and will be using this friendly match as part of their preparations for this summer’s tournament in Russia.

Colombia returns to London, having last played at Craven Cottage in November 2014. Second half goals from Carlos Bacca and Teofilo Guttierez that evening saw them fight back to defeat the United States, who had led at half-time, 2-1.

Australia were also victorious in their last visit to the Cottage in September 2014, outscoring Saudi Arabia 3-2 with Tim Cahill amongst the goals for the Socceroos.

This will be the first time in 17 years that Colombia and Australia will compete against each other, with an enthralling encounter expected on the banks of the River Thames. 

Hospitality packages will be available to purchase from Thursday 25th January, with General Sale tickets being available to purchase, priced from £25 adults and from just £15 for under-16s, from Monday 29th January.

All tickets will be available to purchase online at fulhamfc.com/tickets, by phone on 020 3871 0810, and in person from the Fulham Ticket Office, located at Craven Cottage.
