Every school in the country is being urged to hold a football match to mark the 100th anniversary of the games that took place between opposing troops during the First World War.
The aim is to create a permanent tribute to the soldiers who laid down arms during the Christmas Truce on December 25, 1914.
It is part of the Football Remembers project, which is being run by the British Council, the Football Association, the Football League, and the Premier League.
Every level of football will mark the anniversary during a week of commemoration beginning on December 6 and schools are being asked to hold special matches and to mark the occasion by tweeting a photograph of their teams using the hashtag #FootballRemembers.
