A New Destination For England Supporters

Last updated : 05 November 2019 By Three Lions

The Three Lions make a first ever trip to Kosovo later this month for the final fixture in their Euro 2020 qualifying group.

On the pitch it is sure to prove a difficult game as the international newcomers showed their attacking quality and fearless spirit in the recent 5-3 thriller at Southampton.

Off the field it means a new venue for England's travelling supporters and the chance to tick off a country that they may not otherwise have visited.

The capital city of Pristina, described by Lonely Planet as 'exuding an infectious energy' will be the venue for the match, with the Fadil Vokrri Stadium playing host to comfortably its biggest ever occasion.

Named after a famous former player and the man mainly responsible for having Kosovo recognised by UEFA and FIFA, the stadium holds 13,500 and will be full to the rafters for the visit of Gareth Southgate's side.

The Football Supporters' Federation produces regular 'Free Lions' guides for England fans away from home.
