World Football Memories for World Alzheimer's Day

Today, Friday 21st September, is World Alzheimer’s Day and to mark the event Alzheimer Scotland’s Football Memories project is inviting fans to share their stories of past World Cups, international games or trips they have taken to support their teams around the world.

We are asking fans young and old to send in their World Football Memories and stories, of games watched or played in somewhere unusual, trips abroad to follow your team or just take in a local game, or tales of Word Cup glory (or glorious failure, more likely). You can use the Twitter hashtag #worldfootballmemory if you'd like to add a short memory there, or better still, post your story on here.

Thanks to everyone that's already contributed, and for our funders, the People's Postcode Lottery, for their support helping get more people involved. Over the next few days we'll be adding the memories gathered at

So go on - tell the world!
