To celebrate the UEFA Cup Final 2007 in Glasgow, Mischief La-Bas were commissioned by Glasgow City Council to come up with something special.
The result was the creation of two iconic but fictional local football teams THE GLASGOW THUNDERBOLTS (1934) and GLASGOW UNITED (1975).
Complete with Managers, programme sellers and 'Wives & Girlfriends' the teams paraded through the streets - signing autographs, shaking hands and posing for innumerable photos with Spanish fans before playing two 'home and away' matches in George Square and the Merchant City. The event was hailed by event organiser Colin Hartley as 'the best commission we've ever made from you, you've outdone yourselves'
We enjoyed it so much we made our own film edition - 'The Big Match' ... enjoy.
