The Three Lions head to Rio

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

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.

#ICYMI: Don’t Luiz your head…

Football is back, and while we could’ve been worried about players taking a few games to get into their stride, David Luiz delivered from the off. Having been dropped to the bench and only entering the game due to an injury, he fluffed his clearance leading to Man City’s opener in first half stoppage time, before compounding his misery by giving away a penalty and getting sent off for an unwanted hat-trick just after the break.
