The NCFA are providing PRIMARY, JUNIOR and SECONDARY schools – along with Universities and Sports Trusts with the opportunity to twin their designated areas of play with the Flanders Peace Field. Working in partnership with the Peace Village, Messines, Belgium (site of the 1914 Christmas Truce) the Peace Field Project (PFP) invites schools not only to commemorate the First World War and the Christmas Truce but also to celebrate peace through reflecting on a moment in history that inspires humanitarianism.
Schools apply (FREE) on-line

Participants in the PEACE FIELD PROJECT receive:
- A PFP Plaque displayed at the designated area of play and the duplicate plaque displayed in Flanders Peace Fields, Peace Village, Mesen, Belgium.
- A joint PFP certificate from NCFA and Peace Village / Flanders Peace Field
- A PFP kite mark
- Online links with Peace Village / Flanders Peace Field and NCFA’s Football & Peace website with access to forum / quarterly newsletters / events.
- Each school will have their PFP home page on the Football & Peace website.
The aim of the PFP is to create peace makers for the future. Young people (inspired by the 1914 Christmas Truce) will absorb the essence of why fair play is important and begin to understand that sport can transcend conflict and cement friendships for life.
Lest We Forget
The PFP lends itself to cross curricular participation (sports, history, literacy, arts, humanities and citizenship), community cohesion and intergenerational relationships.
Schools are invited to sign a PFP Declaration, pledging to hold a games event once a year throughout the centenary years on their peace field to commemorate WW1 and celebrate peace.
The Peace Fields Project is open to primary schools, secondary schools and all sports clubs, promoting sportsmanship and equal opportunities.
