Free Sofia Tour welcomed part of the 3000+ English soccer fans that were expected to arrive in Bulgaria’s capital to see the game between the two countries’ teams tonight. Our walking tour was recommended by the British Embassy here in Sofia and included in the FSF’s England fanzine, Free Lions, produced and distributed at England away games. We are also part of leaflet for the game of the the official supporters club (Englandfans).
In order to give our guests a better welcome, we provided flyers for the Fans’ Embassy and additional volunteers were waiting for them at our usual spot. As you know, we like to keep the groups smaller. That’s why yesterday (01.09) at 6PM there were 4 people with Free Sofia Tour badges at the start. This morning at 11AM, there were again 4 volunteers that split our 80+ guests into four separate groups.
Until the end of the weekend, there would be at least two people expecting more guests from England and not only. Our “regular” group this morning, for example, included people from all over the world as usual – this time 22 people from 10 different countries.
We would like the thank our English friends not only for the trust the put in us, the good time they showed us while walking with us but also some nice presents that we got from them.
P.S. May the better team win tonight!
