Northern Ireland vs England: Free Lionesses Fans’ Embassy returns

The Free Lionesses Fans’ Embassy which debuted at the World Cup back in 2019 will be returning for England’s visit to Northern Ireland next month.

Working alongside the Amalgamation of Official Northern Ireland Supporters’ Clubs (AONISC) the Free Lionesses will be on hand in Belfast to support fans making the trip to see England’s World Cup qualifier against Northern Ireland.

The Embassy service will be operating from 2pm till 5.30pm on Tuesday 2nd April at the Royal Belfast Naval Association on Great Victoria Street.

So what is a Fans’ Embassy?

A Fans’ Embassy is a free service provided by the Football Supporters’ Association for fans following the England national team.

Historically this has tended to focus on the Men’s senior side with the Free Lions, but since the last World Cup the FSA have launched Free Lionesses to help fans following the Women’s senior team too.

The service means England fans have a designated location to visit for help and advice surrounding England matches abroad

Our Free Lionesses team are able to offer a friendly check in point within the cities where England play, as well as emergency contact details just in case.
