Football Remembers the Christmas Truce

Football Remembers the Christmas Truce

This weekend marks the beginning of a very special week - as Football Remembers the Christmas Truce - one of the most poignant examples of humanity overcoming all else in the most harrowing of circumstances.

One hundred years on from the friendly football games on the Western Front every club, from the Premier League to parks leagues will be taking part in a special combined pre-match photograph, replicating the spirit shown on the battlefields during The First World War.

Later this month there will be a commemorative match between the British and German armies to be held at Aldershot Town FC on Wednesday 17th December, kick-off 7.30pm.
