Our ambassador

Sir Trevor Brooking

"During and after the First World War, trees were planted in remembrance, marking the loss of life and the sacrifices made. We feel strongly that we should continue this tradition and create a living and growing legacy as a fitting tribute to football’s involvement that people can visit."
