England team will fly back into?

The last time England did really well in a World Cup it brought Luton and its airport to a complete standstill. I doubt they would be welcome to return this time as the airport is a different beast these days so couldn't handle the crowds. Anyone have the inside information where they will end up?

They departed from BHX on Gainjet so I suppose they will return there.

Isn't the National HQ/training base somewhere in the Midlands ?

I heard last week at work that they were coming back into EGNX and would be using the Cargo East Apron as then well away from passenger ops and general public view plus can have the invited media on the apron safely

This is what happened at Luton the last time England did well at a world cup or was it the Euros and yes this was the main route into the airport. Think it was 1990

St George's Park near Burton-on-Trent. Handy for both BHX and EMA.
