Football Remembering

Notts County Council are publicising a Games of Remembrance Day planned on November 8 involving football matches at Notts County and Nottm Forest grounds and played between Men and Women of the British Army and similarly teams from German Armed Forces.

The two games -- Ladies at Notts ground at 12 noon and men Forest at 7pm -- are meant to replicate similar games that took place on Christmas Day 1917 when a WW1 24 hour truce was agreed between England and Germany and which resulted in football being played between the Army personnel of the two countries.

The two games on November 8 will be attended by VIPs and sporting legends from both countries and there will be fan zones, music and exhibition areas at both grounds.

A family ticket for the women’s game will cost £5 (1 adult and 2 children) and for the evening game two adults and two children will be admitted for £10. There will be a concession price of £2 50 to either game for any uniformed services, under 16’s, students and senior citizens.

Tickets are on sale on-line and from the box office of the host clubs.

Contact for further information.

The Games of Remembrance through the power of football, aims to bring WW1 stories of courage and sacrifice alive, 100 years after the guns fell silent.
