Buckingham Palace to hold it's first official football match

The FA president Prince William, Duke of Cambridge has helped to organise a football match at Buckingham Palace.

 two of England's oldest amateur clubs; Civil Service FC and polytechnic FC both based in Chiswick, West London, will play at the palace on the 7th of October.

William will host the event and also present medals to 150 volunteers.

The Queen herself has given her blessing for this Southern Amateur League match to take place in one of Britain's most iconic Royal properties.

Wembley groundsman Tony Stones will work with the royal household gardeners to create a pitch in the 40-acre garden. 

The 400,000 volunteers who help run local matches every year were praised by the Duke of Cambridge, who stated;

"In our 150th year, it is hugely important for the FA to honour the efforts of the many thousands of volunteers who week in, week out, help to provide the opportunity for millions more people to enjoy football at grassroots level."

Greg Dyke, chairman of the FA, said he was "delighted" about the "first-ever game of football to be played at Buckingham Palace".
