England are off to Portugal this week as they prepare for the first-ever finals of the new UEFA Nations League – and the Free Lions team will be on hand to help fans once more.

Our Fans’ Embassy will be following the team across Portugal, depending how far they make it, starting in the historic city of Guimarães which is the focus of Free Lions issue 166.

You can find the fans’ embassy team in Guimarães on match day between about 10am and 5pm at Largo do Toural.

On the day before the game, we’ll be based both in Guimarães at Largo do Toural, between around 12 noon and 5pm, and also in Porto at similar times, at Alfandega on the north bank of the Douro river.

In the meantime, keep up to date by following Free Lions on Twitter @FSF_FreeLions and the Free Lions facebook page.

Free Lions 166 includes:

  • Learning on the job: Clive Hetherington on England’s fresh-faced internationals
  • Welcome to Guimarães: a comprehensive guide to the historic Portuguese city
  • The Football Supporters’ Association: a bit about the work we do
  • It’s never enough: how Champions League shake-up threatens English football
