Isles of Scilly soccer league

In the Isles of Scilly exists the smallest soccer league in the world, comprised of just two teams: the Garrison Gunners and the Wolfpack Wanderers. Oh sure, the league used to be huge - 4 teams. However, a dwindling population in this series of islands located 30 miles off the coast of England has left the league with just the two squads since the 1950s.

Every Sunday morning is the same when the two teams meet. The same field, the same changing rooms, the same teammates and the same opponents. 

Read this fascinating story in the New York Times, and see how soccer plays such a huge role in this small community.
