£460,000 for one day of forest football in the Borders


Four football teams will take to the pitch created at the heart of a Selkirk woodland in one of Scotland's most high profile artistic contributions to the Cultural Olympiad for London 2012.

The art project cost almost £500,000 and has proved controversial since it was announced. Following the one day of football, the pitch will be allowed to return to its natural state.

Artist Craig Coulthard said: "Its legacy is more of a poetic legacy than a practical legacy."

BBC Scotland's Cameron Buttle went along for a special preview.
