A trip to Pullach, famous for being the old home of the BND (German secret service) amongst other things for a Bayernliga Süd game.
We got the local suburban train to Pullach, an affluent village just outside of Munich. A very short walk on a very sunny day took us to the SV Pullach ground, the Sportgelände an der Gistlstraße. There aren’t any stands, but there is a beer garden right behind the goal.
8 euros for a ticket, which is steep for this level and we are in. Although you really could watch the game for free outside if you wanted.
After getting in we got a beer, and the teams came out. They made the ‘wave to the crowd’ gesture, which when there are only 90 people in the ground seems faintly ridiculous.
Kick off. It was clear SV Pullach were the much better team, with a couple of players who seemed the could cut it at a higher level. TSV Schwaben Augsburg looked to be playing very defensively, and frankly had some players who looked like they enjoyed beers and pies a bit too much.
After the best chance of the game falling to TSV Schwaben Augsburg in the first half, 0-0 at half time.
The second half saw SV Pullach shooting towards their beer garden end, and they got a penalty. That was converted, and they got a second just before full time on the counter attack. Final score 2-0.
Then, it was off into the village for a beer or two, and back home on the train. The sinister SV Pullach badge will stay long in the memory.
Score: 2 – 0
