In a gesture intended signal a return to normalcy as a result of the joint EU/UN-negotiated cease-fire in Sarajevo, General Sir Michael Rose staged a football match in the damaged but still standing stadium. In this smaller arena, under the aegis of the sky blue and white colours of the UN, a ritualised battle was fought in the name of peace between two teams, one made up of troops from the UN peace-keeping force, the other of surviving members of the local football team.
