Nationwide FSF Fans’ Embassy and Cymru info

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

So the Premier League goes into hibernation and international fixtures are back upon us. It’s nice to take a breather from domestic football so we can debate more interesting and unusual topics. Like, erm, whether Lampard and Gerrard can play together.

England face Kazakhstan at Wembley on Saturday 11th before a long trip to Minsk and a tricky away tie with Belarus on Wednesday 15th. Most will be expecting a comfortable victory but beware, Belarus faced Germany, Argentina and Finland over the summer and held all three to draws.

As ever the Nationwide FSF Fans’ Embassy will be dishing out copies of Free Lions at both games. On Saturday you can pick one up from the usual points – the bottom of the ramps on Olympic Way, or outside turnstiles M and N near Wembley Stadium station. Registered FSF members will of course receive their usual copy through the post.

The Nationwide FSF Fans’ Embassy service will operate in Minsk on Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th October, for the game between Belarus and England. The Fans’ Embassy will be located in the park beside the Dynamo Stadium, Minsk, from noon to 5pm on Tuesday, and from 10am to 6pm on Wednesday.

Wales take on Liechtenstein in Cardiff on Saturday 11th October before a testing trip to Monchengladbach to face Germany on October 15th. Fans making the trip to Germany can read FSF Cymru’s Guide to Germany here.
