To remind everyone of the fact that the Bundesliga season begins this weekend, Sky Sports Germany turned up at a Kreisliga (the lowest division in Germany) game between SV Lohhof und SSV Dillingen at the weekend and transmogrified their Sunday morning kickabout in a full bells-and-whistles Bundesliga clash.

While the players were in the changing rooms having their pre-game dumps, etc, Sky rolled in over the hill and quickly turned the humble ground into a ‘stadium’ – complete with TV trucks and presenters, sponsorship hoardings (to cover the other, non-Sky advertising hoardings!) and vast hordes of fans cheering on both sides.

The video is in German, but it doesn’t need translating…

Lovely stuff, though we’re duty-bound to point out that it’s not the first time it’s been done – UEFA got there first: transforming a Danish U14’s game into a ‘European Championship Final’ not so very long ago…
