England beat Andorra 1-0 in the reverse fixture in October 2017, thanks to a goal from Everton’s Tom Davies.
Aidy Boothroyd’s side are top of Group 4, five points ahead of Netherlands who they face in their next home game at Norwich City’s Carrow Road stadium on Thursday 6 September (7.45pm KO).
Boothroyd said: “We’re really looking forward to playing in Chesterfield. It’s a great stadium and I know from experience just how good the support is there.
“This match will be a really important one for us. Hopefully we’ll have already qualified for next summer’s tournament and it’ll be a big game in terms of our preparation, but if we still need to get points then I’m confident we’ll be able to do it here.
“We’ve got a really talented, hard-working group of players and I know they can’t wait to play in front of our home supporters and hopefully a full stadium in Chesterfield.”
A Chesterfield FC club spokesperson said: “We are delighted to be hosting international football once again at the Proact.
“The prospect of watching some of the country’s brightest young footballing talents is certain to appeal to the people of Chesterfield and we look forward to another good crowd for the match.”
The Finals will be played in Italy and San Marino in June 2019.
