Free Lions 150 – Guide to Slovenia

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

England are back on their travels next week against Slovenia in Ljubljana as Gareth Southgate takes charge of his first match as England manager.

This edition is a bit of a milestone, as it’s the 150th edition since we began back in Euro 2000.

As always, the FSF Fans’ Embassy will be out and about to offer assistance.

We’ll be based in Ljubljana on Monday from 12 noon till 5pm and from 10am till 5pm on Tuesday – you’ll find us at the Slovenia Football Federation Nike football store, opposite the town hall in Mestni trg. We’ll be available on our 24-hour helpline too: +44 7956 121314.

Details of shuttle buses from Ljubljana city centre to and from the Stozice stadium for England’s game against Slovenia next Tuesday have now been confirmed:

They will depart from Slovenska Cesta, on the side of Kongresni trg (Congress Square). They will run from 18:30 to 20:00 before the match, returning after the game and allowing for any hold-back of England fans in the stadium after the final whistle.

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

  • A Guide to Ljubljana, the Slovenian capital
  • Clive Hetherington looks at Jack Wilshere’s England career
  • A look at Slovenia’s “Key 3” players
