England play Brazil on Sunday 2nd June in the Maracana, Rio de Janeiro, and the FSF England Fans’ Embassy team will be out on the beaches of Brazil handing out Free Lions. You have to feel for them, don’t you?

The Vauxhall englandfans hub has also put on two days worth of fun and games including quizzes, competitions and a Q&A with Chris Kamara. Fans can also collect their tickets from FA staff at the hub. Download the itinery here.

The Vauxhall englandfans hub location is the Devassa bar in Ipanema, which is at Rua Prudente de Morais 16, at the junction of that street with Rua Farmede Amoedo: it’s just one block back from the sea front.

The FSF England Fans’ Embassy team will operate on Saturday 1st June (10am-5pm) and Sunday 2nd June (10am-1pm). Subject to official permission, they hope to be based by the beach at Ipanema, by the junction of Av. Vieira Souto and Rua Farmede Amoedo – at the end of the street where the ticket collection point is.

  • Free Lions 129 will be handed out in Rio – download your exclusive preview Guide to Rio here.
