garrison footballBritish football fans watching last night’s game on German TV might have had a surprise.

Ex-pat viewers who speak German were bemused when the commentator started talking about the Isles of Scilly and the world’s smallest football league during the Bayern and Roma match.

It led to a flurry of comments on Twitter.

Last month German TV reporters from ZDF, the channel that broadcast yesterday’s game, and equivalent to our BBC1, filmed players on The Garrison.

The show is set to air on November 9th. Producers have promised to send DVDs of the finished broadcast to islanders who took part.
