On Saturday December 1, St Matthews' Project and Broomwood Football Club are asking all clubs to hold a minute's silence before their games.
They are also requesting that clubs, fans, players, parents, sporting organisations and community groups spread the message - #footballunitedagainstknifecrime - on the morning of December 1 and December 2.
On November 5th this year, John Ogunjobi was stabbed to death in Tulse Hill. John played for St Matthews' Project in the London County Saturday Youth Football League until recently.
This initiative has been agreed with the support of John's family and is a campaign to demonstrate that the community is united in its efforts to stop knife crime.
This Saturday will be a chance to share a moment to commemorate John and to spread the message that football is an important factor in binding together the community and protecting young lives.
