Flu 100

In 2019 Under 12s from the Premier League Academies took part in Flu100 to earn a place in the Christmas Truce Challenge Tournament. Clubs can earn a place in this annual competition in Ypres, Belgium, by taking part in the Education Challenge. In 2019, the project commemorated those who lost their lives in the Flu Pandemic of 1918-1919.

Academy players used the Flu100 resource pack to learn about the devastating effect of the Flu Pandemic after the end of the First World War. The academies looked into their club history and researched the impact on the virus on their local area. The players then designed memorials for the victims of the Flu100 pandemic and shared them with the judging panel.

Middlesborough FC and Watford FC Under 12s were selected the winners of the Flu100 Challenge.

This project has now been made available to school and community groups, renamed Flu100+. If you would like access to the free resource pack please click here.
