●The guest beer will be Brigadista Ale, a special edition beer brewed by Black Hill Brewery in County Durham for this year's commemorations.
We would like to invite all supporters to come to the game and remember the bravery of those who travelled over land and sea to fight fascism.
The day is being supported by the Dulwich Hamlet Supporters’ Trust.  Its Chair, Duncan Hart said “Over the past few seasons, we have helped put on numerous community initiatives from Rainbow Laces day to support the fight against homophobia in football to fundraising for those in need of humanitarian support in Calais and Dunkirk.  We are more than happy to commemorate the actions of these brave individuals and raise money for the International Brigade Memorial Trust.”
David Rogers, Trust Board member for Community Development commented: 
"The Football Club has always made sure that we welcome everyone to our games and the club have always taken a strong stance against discrimination in all forms.  We are delighted to be partnering up with ASLEF, Hope not Hate and the IBMT in order to commemorate these brave people.”
