Free Lions 151 – Guide to Germany

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

England return to Germany next week almost exactly a year after a dramatic 3-2 win in their last visit to the reigning World Champions.

This time Borrusia Dortmund’s Signal Iduna Park will host the fixture and as always the FSF Fans’ Embassy will be out and about to offer assistance.

The majority of England fans will be staying in the nearby city of Düsseldorf and that’s where our Fans’ Embassy team will be located on Tuesday afternoon, 21st March. We’ll be at Hauptbahnhof from 2pm to 6pm so make sure you come and get your hard copy of Free Lions 151. On matchday, we’ll be in Dortmund’s market square from 10am to 5pm.

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

Free Lions 151 includes:

  • Welcome to Dortmund – a guide to the industrial town
  • Clive Hetherington looks at England and Germany’s historic rivalry
  • A look at Germany’s “Key 3” players
  • Eating & Drinking in Düsseldorf & Dortmund
