Free Lions 148 – Guide to Nice

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

England play Iceland in Nice on Monday for their round-of-16 European Championship 2016 match.

As ever we’ve produced a match-specific Free Lions for the fixture – something we’ll be doing for the quarter-final, semi-final and final too (should England go all the way!).

We expect the FSF Fans’ Embassy team to be based at the Quai Etats-Unis next to the UEFA fanzone on Sunday and Monday – this may be subject to change, so keep an eye on our social media.

You can also keep up to date by following Free Lions on Twitter @FSF_FreeLions and the Free Lions facebook page.

Free Lions 148 includes:

  • A Guide to the capital of the French Riviera
  • Clive Hetherington on England’s tournament so far
  • A look at Iceland’s “Key 3” players
  • Looking ahead to Paris…

As with previous tournaments, we’ve produced a comprehensive guide to the host nation, the England Fans’ Guide to France. You can download a digital copy here.
