With Wembley preparing to host games at the Euros, the squad needed to go on the road again, and the decision has been made to select one destination to help create a Covid-secure environment.
England have previously played in Manchester, Sunderland, Leeds, Leicester and Southampton since 2016, and fans are likely to be able to attend the match in the north east. According to the government's 'roadmap' out of lockdown, up to 10,000 spectators will be able to attend fixtures from May 17, although this is yet to be confirmed.
Southgate's squad will complete their preparations for the tournament in Middlesbrough before relocating to their usual base at St George's Park, which will be their home for the duration of the Euros.
