Palace hosts historic soccer match
Buckingham Palace's garden will be the venue for a football match between two of England's oldest amateur clubs today.
The Duke of Cambridge, president of the FA, has helped organise the event - the first of its kind at the Queen's London home - as part of the Football Association's 150th anniversary celebrations.
Civil Service FC and Polytechnic FC, both based in Chiswick, west London, will play a competitive Southern Amateur League fixture in the gardens of the famous landmark.
The Queen gave her permission for the match and Wembley groundsman Tony Stones and his team have worked with the royal household gardeners to create a pitch in the 39-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.
The recipients were chosen for their outstanding contribution to football, including helping to develop the women's game, providing opportunities for disabled players and refereeing.
