Gascoigne, 51, who earned 57 England caps between 1988 and 1998, was arrested on August 20 and charged on November 19 with allegedly sexually assaulting a woman on a train.
It is alleged that Gascoigne touched the woman in question while the train was in Darlington, on its way to Durham from York.
After being granted unconditional bail, Gascoigne's case was subsequently transferred to Teeside Crown Court and will be heard on January 8 next year.
The retired footballer earned a cult-status among supporters for his displays in European football and on the international stage during the '90s.
At club level, Gascoigne enjoyed his best spells at Spurs and Rangers, with some experts labelling him 'the most naturally gifted English midfielder of his generation'.
Unfortunately, off the pitch, he has courted controversy and suffered with alcoholism and mental health issues, leading to several stints in rehab.
