If enthusiasts are fond of sport, particularly football scores game, even the lack of competitors is not a hindrance for them. This is proved by the experience of the British islands – Scilly, where residents successfully deal with their favorite football ball playing it alone.
The British islands of Scilly are located 45 kilometers southwest of Cornwall, it has been a remarkable tourist destination for many years. There are beautiful flowers, the exhibition of which invariably attracts fans of exotic there. Many beautiful sandy beaches with crystal clear water and lots of flotsam and jetsam do Scilly Islands a paradise for diving enthusiasts. Historians believe that once there lived Prince Tristan when he later met his beautiful Isolde.
But this island is famous not only due to its remarkable places. The thing is that there live only about two thousand people. It is the island where the local people founded the world's smallest football league. It consists of only two football balls - clubs - Garrison Gunners and the Woolpack Warriors. According to the island football facts, the professional footballers are not found in any of them, however, they play a championship meeting for a match 17 times a season, fighting for three Cups - Foredeck Cup, Charity Shield and Wholesalers Cup. And after every Christmas there held a game called "youth against the old" in the island, although young people keep abandoning the island as the number of jobs in this small archipelago is limited, and young people leave to work on the mainland. Therefore, almost all active players are the mostly older than 30 years. But the League is still thriving, especially after it had made as the smallest world league in the Guinness Book of Records.
Many of football games today publications have written about these remarkable people since then. Football has won their hearts so firmly that they absolutely do not care about the fact that they meet on the field with their sons, fathers, brothers and uncles or even just a bartender from a local pub with the mailman single post office. And it is not important that from time to time all the players see the same familiar faces, scoring one and the same goalie and get the legs on the same defender. And this attitude to their favorite sport is paying off. In 2008, Adidas took off on islands other than a short story for the Dream Big. And the creators of computer games seriously ponder over to create a computer entertaining football game on Scilly. We have to think that this game will also become a worldwide sensation, as well as those who will serve as a prototype for it. [sc name="adsense"]
Currently, the popularity of the smallest league keeps rising. Press Secretary Howard Cole continually receives proposals for friendly matches from the teams of lower English leagues. As David Grottik, the permanent arbitrator of Scilly Islands says: Football will never get tired! It is remarkable that there are people so fanatically devoted to their favorite occupation.
