Andrew Strauss and his England side are looking to win the Ashes on Australian soil for the first time in nearly a quarter of a century. They will soon play their first warm up game ahead of the massive series. Thousands of England fans are set to support them on the other side of the world and will soon be joining them. Many of those supporters will have arranged their trips through the Barmy Army, the well known England supporter’s group.
The Barmy Army had several packages on offer for fans who wanted to support the England side, and the tours have been in the planning for well over a year in advance to the start of the series, meaning heavy workloads for many staff.
