Buckingham Palace to host football match

BUCKINGHAM Palace is to host its first ever official football match as part of the Football Association’s 150th anniversary celebrations.
The Duke of Cambridge, president of the FA, helped arrange the game between two of England’s oldest amateur clubs in the gardens of the famous landmark.
Civil Service FC and Polytechnic FC, both based in Chiswick, west London, are preparing to go head to head in the unique Southern Amateur League fixture at the palace on Monday, October 7.
The Queen gave her permission for the match and Wembley groundsman Tony Stones will work with the royal household gardeners to create a pitch in the 40-acre garden.
William will host the event and also present medals to 150 grassroots volunteers in recognition of their dedication to the sport. The match is being held in tribute to their commitment.
