Celebrate the joy of playing football. #OneWorld

We gave Bedfordshire FA Ability Counts league a #OneWorld football and they used it at the FA People's Cup.

#OneWorld is a celebration of how football brings people together and commissioned by Liverpool Biennial and 14-18 NOW:WW1 Centenary Art Commissions.

It was inspired by the Christmas Truce matches that were played during the First World War, artist Mark Wallinger used images from Earthrise, the iconic photograph taken in 1968 from Apollo 8.

These limited edition One World Footballs have been given to community projects and extraordinary individuals across the UK with the invitation to create and share their own videos in response to Wallinger's call to action, join in and celebrate the joy of playing football.

Our video of the photo highlights of the day has been shared and viewed on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. You can see it below.
