Free Lions giveaway

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

This month we have a very special offer for all you collectors out there.  The FSF’s England fanzine, Free Lions, is to be reduced in price for anyone interested in extending their collection. Distributed at both home and away games, Free Lions gives information and advice to travelling supporters at tournaments, qualifiers and friendlies and includes articles, quizzes and various other bits of useful info to make your trip a pleasant one.

Whether you’re missing a few copies or want to start collecting from scratch, now’s the time to start. You can buy up to 20 issues for £5, up to 40 issues for £10, or a copy of every issue we have in stock for £15.

Due to the popularity of Free Lions the earliest issues are out of stock, but we still have issues 29 to 85 available.  If you’re especially desperate for a specific edition get in touch sharpish though, we’re running out pretty quickly. There’s a full list here.

Individual copies are still available for £1, which includes P&P, as do the above prices. The offer will only be available for a limited time, so get in touch.

Give us a call on 0870 2777 777 to order via debit/credit card or send a cheque payable to The FSF at The Fans’ Stadium, Kingsmeadow, Jack Goodchild Way, 422a Kingston Road, Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey, KT1 3PB. Make sure to include a contact number and which issues you’re after.

If you don’t already receive Free Lions get every copy free (along with tfs) by joining the FSF. Membership is £15 per year (discounts for Direct Debit payment, students, over 60 and the unwaged) and can be purchased by ringing us or via the website.
