The spot, created by Freuds, shows black-and-white close-ups of famous faces in football, with Prince William beginning: "In life, as in football, we all go through many highs and lows".

It has a season-long Heads Up partnership with the FA. I came from a family where we bottled up a lot of emotions, feelings and sometimes anxieties. But we can all start to change things.

Godric Smith, chair of the Heads Up campaign, said: "Football is already doing some great work on mental health but it is really encouraging to see the whole game uniting around the Heads Up campaign in 2020 starting with the Emirates FA Cup Third Round". "It's a huge strength". It's so important to get people thinking and speaking openly about mental health.
