outside the Football Association's headquarters in Soho Square with a coal ball, scoring own-goals and with the slogans 'Climate FU Cup' and 'E-ON: No new coal' emblazoned on their football shirts. On the backs of their shirts were the names of the proposed new coal-fired power stations.
A member of the group handed in a formal letter to Jonathan Hill, Director of the FA's Commercial Division, to complain about sponsorship of the culturally iconic game by a fossil fool. E-ON are aggressively promoting a return to coal, the dirtiest of all fossil fuels, despite the urgent need to drastically cut climate-changing emissions.
Some police, and FA security attended the match, supporting from the front doors of the FA headquarters. The match went on for over an hour, only stopping for oranges and a team photo at half time.
