Additionally there is a competition open to schools across the UK to design a memorial to the football truce.

50 designs will be shortlisted and the schools will be invited to take part in a special display at the National Memorial Arboretum this summer.

The winning design will be chosen by a panel of judges including HRH The Duke of Cambridge and footballer Theo Walcott. The design will then be constructed at the National Memorial Arboretum, Staffordshire. This will be unveiled during Football Remembers week in December 2014.
The competition closes on 16 June 2014.
