Rejected petition Make it a rule to show Wales vs England world cup match in schools

In 2016 in the euros they played the Wales vs England in schools and I feel that it would increase national pride if they let us do it again

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about something that the Senedd or Welsh Government is not responsible for.

Harry - I love the sentiment behind this petition, but unfortunately (or fortunately), that game - if Wales qualify - will be played at 7pm, long after schools have closed. Had the game been scheduled in school-time, we would have found a way to accept it.

The game will be live on the BBC, so hopefully you, me, and all the football fans in Wales will be able to cheer along Robert Page's team. (Fingers crossed we qualify!)

Thanks for submitting your petition,
