Sky Sports Germany Surprise Amateur Players, Transmogrify Lower League Game Into Full Bundesliga Bash (Video)
By Chris Wright
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…
