World Cup Guide

Welcome to the Free Lions Guide to Brazil 2014. This page is where you will be able to find our all-singing, all-dancing guide to Brazil 2014 when we launch on March 14th. 

Our World Cup Guide is more than just a website, though - as at previous tournaments we will also be distilling the key information into guidebook form for those lucky enough to be heading out to Brazil this summer. The guidebook will be ready much closer to the tournament itself, so in the meantime we suggest that you bookmark this page for all your Brazil 2014 updates. 

We're well underway with our rigourous research into all aspects that will affect travelling fans heading out to the World Cup - we've been on visits to the host cities already, and we're in the process of drawing together all the information that could be of any use. We'll have the lowdown not only on the cities that England will definitely be playing in (Manaus, Sao Paulo and Belo Horizonte), but potential knock-out city venues of Rio, Recife, Fortaleza and Salvador too. 

As usual we'll have all the key information for England fans, from getting there and getting around, to health, safety and security info tips, as well as some handy local lingo to your trip run that little bit smoother.  

In the meantime, there are some helpful sources of information that fans should make themselves aware of before our Guidebook comes out:

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office's Be On The Ball and Know Before You Go websites are full of helpful information for the travelling fan. Then there's always Englandfans and the official Fifa World Cup site for ticketing and matchday news.
