The Duke of Cambridge paid tribute to football's unsung heroes by honouring 150 grassroots volunteers ahead of an historic match in Buckingham Palace's garden today.
Civil Service FC and Polytechnic FC, both based in Chiswick, will play a Southern Amateur League fixture in the gardens of the famous landmark - the first time a competitive match has been held at the Palace.
At its best, football is a powerful force for good in society. It binds people from different backgrounds, communities, faiths and abilities - and gives them a common interest, a unifying identity.
I believe over its 150 years, football has remained a wonderful example of the power of community and of our ability to come together to organise and to enjoy a simple pastime.
