Sir Bobby backs Games of Remembrance

12 October 2018

World Cup-winning Sir Bobby Charlton will be in Nottingham in November after announcing his support for the 2018 Games of Remembrance.

Members of the British Army and German Armed Forces will play matches on 8 November to mark 100 years since the armistice and pay respect to those who lost their lives during World War I.

The women's match takes place at Meadow Lane and the legend of English football is proud to be getting involved with the games and has urged people to attend.

“I’m honoured to support the Games of Remembrance,” said Sir Bobby.

“I’ve played the game and worked with so many footballers over the years, but none could make me prouder than the men and women footballers who served the Great War effort 100 years ago.

“Join the games on 8 November – look behind the photos and see what you can find out.”

Chairman of Army Football, General Mitch Mitchell, is delighted to have the former Ballon D’or winner on board.

He explained: “It’s a massive privilege to have the support of a footballing legend like Sir Bobby Charlton for the Games of Remembrance.”

There will be two games on the day, with the match at Meadow Lane kicking off at midday and the men’s game getting underway at Nottingham Forest’s City Ground at 7pm.
