Football Remembers Week

Football teams, fans and schools across Wales are invited to remember WW1 during ‘Football Remembers Week’. Before football matches taking place during the week 6-14 December all players who start the match are asked to pose together in a group photograph as a mark of respect to those that played in the 1914 Christmas Truce match. Teams are asked to post their photographs on social media using the hashtag #FootballRemembers. The pictures will then be uploaded to a dedicated website. Photos of any match of any size can be uploaded, from school to Sunday league fixtures, five-a-side matches to kickabouts in the back garden. Professional teams including the Premiership will be taking part. The website will act as a moment of record of football in 2014, a century on from the First World War, and will be preserved for future generations.
