The Premier League, The FA, EFL and the PFA are joining forces under the banner of ‘Football Remembers’ to mark the Armistice Centenary and Remembrance weekend.
On 11 November 1918, the Armistice was signed, signalling the end of World War One. One century on, England’s four football bodies will be part of the nationwide commemorations, with support from Premier League Clubs, EFL Clubs and the English national teams paying tribute through a variety of activities.
Remembrance Sunday coincides with the Armistice Centenary, and a range of Football Remembers activity will take place over the weekends leading up to 11 November to mark the efforts of servicemen and women, past and present. Bespoke commemorative coins from the Royal British Legion will be used for the coin toss at every Premier League, EFL and FA Cup match to pay tribute to all those involved in the First World War.
