Football & Peace Project

The FOOTBALL & PEACE PROJECT (click on link to download full report).  The Football & Peace Project (F&PP) was inspired by the Christmas Truce of 1914, it considered how the symbolic moment of First World War history relates to the contemporary mission of the NCFA.  F&PP linked the escapism of play with the historic and explored conflict resolution.  It provided young people with the opportunity to research their heritage in World War One through the medium of sport.  The F&PP provided teachers with the opportunity to engage pupils in subjects across their school’s curricular, using sport as a vehicle.
