World Cup guide for England fans
Frankfurt's Commerzbank Arena
England fans head first to Frankfurt
A free guide for England football fans wanting to plan their trip to the World Cup this summer has been produced.

The 150-page guide book, Free Lions, by the Football Supporters' Federation (FSF), gives a run-down on each of the tournament's host German cities.

It has travel, accommodation, food and Foreign Office advice and includes useful words and phrases such as "Tor", (goal) and "Abseits" (offside).

The FSF will also have an information "embassy" in each city hosting England.

They play their group B games in Frankfurt on 10 June, Nuremberg on 15 June and Cologne on 20 June.

A free text message service will also keep travelling supporters aware of any problems and highlight any security issues.

Copies of the book are available with a voucher downloaded from the FSF website.

The tournament begins on 9 June and the final is scheduled for 9 July.
