THIS COUNTRY v THAT COUNTRY is a charity football match being played on 28th March 2020.

NCFA patrons, Charlie and Daisy Cooper, stars of the hit BBC comedy series This Country will be a part of a team playing a very special game of football

The challenge is to play two halves of football in two different countries on the same day: the first half will be played at Market Road Pitches, North London, N7 9PL, with the second half taking place on The Peace Pitch, Peace Village, Flanders, Belgium, site of the First World War’s 1914 Christmase truces.  The objective is to raise money for young people to participate in the 2020 GLOBAL PEACE GAMES. Held annually at the Peace Village, Mesen, Belgium, the Global Peace Games is a week-long peace education programme in which around 60 underprivileged children from different backgrounds across the world get together to take part in an inclusive series of activities and sports. The GPGs celebrates the International Day of Peace through sport and has a lasting impact on each and every young person who attends, helping to develop confidence, break down barriers and creates peace makers for the future.  The event will poignantly see a Peace Poppy Football transported from London to Flanders, before being laid at The Last Post, Menin Gate, Ypres, Belgium in a declaration of peace.
