Here is a short guide for the England fans who intend to attend the U-20 WWC in Brittany next Summer.
FIFA and the FFF LOC have decided to organise the U-20 tournament in one specific region Brittany rather than spread it all over France which makes it much easier to travel around and more cost effective.
There are four cities involved in the tournament : Saint-Malo, Dinan-Lehon, Vannes and Concarneau, here is the map including the distance between the different cities.
