Join The FSA

South Africa 2012

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

Just a quick one to say South Africa 2012 here we come! The FSF’s team will be out in South Africa dishing out Free Lions to the estimated 20,000 fans making the trip south but keep an eye out before that for our Fans’ Guide to South Africa 2012.

Obviously we don’t want to be doing anything silly like setting ourselves deadlines but suffice to say we’ll be producing a thoroughly, erm, thorough guide covering everything transport, security and beer related. We’ll fit in some cultural stuff as well, we’re sure.

The trip to Dnipropetrovsk in Ukraine will now take on a more relaxed atmosphere for England fans of course but regulars would still be advised to sign up to E-Lions (see newsletter box left) or keep an eye on Free Lions for our Fans’ Guide to Dnipropetrovsk.

Not only will E-Lions update you on newly published Fans’ Guides but it will also give you access to exclusive Free Lions competitions. You’d be a bit daft not to sign up, all things considered!
