Free Lions 144 – Germany Guide

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

England take on Germany in Berlin this Easter weekend – as the Three Lions start their preparations for the European Championships in France this summer.

As ever the FSF Fans’ Embassy team will be at the match to hand out hard copies of Free Lions to the thousands of England fans travelling to the thriving German capital.

The FSF Fans’ Embassy will be operating on Easter Friday, March 25th from 11am to 5pm, and again on matchday, Saturday March 26th from 10am to 5pm. We’ll be based at Hardenbergplatz, directly outside Zoologischer Railway, S-Bahn and underground station.
