Football and art will be united when four amateur teams play two matches on a specially created pitch in the heart of a Borders forest near Selkirk.
Edinburgh-based Craig Coulthard's Forest Pitch art experience is one of Scotland's most dramatic and delightful contributions to the Cultural Olympiad, which runs in tandem with the 2012 Olympic Games.
Some 60 players, mostly new Scots who have come to Scotland from all round the world for safety, love, work or study will take part in this special tournament on Saturday 21 July.
The men's and women's teams will be cheered on by around 1,000 spectators - each fan making their own contribution to this imaginative celebration of the true Olympian spirit and exploration of 21st-century Scottish culture and identity.
The games take place in a magnificent natural arena, cut from a spruce forest on the Buccleuch Estate, with live music and international food all adding to the match-day excitement.
Tickets need to be booked in advance from www.forestpitch.org or by calling (01665) 833751. Prices are £5 for adults, £3.50 for concessions and under-5s are free. Family tickets are £15. There is a booking fee of 50p per ticket.
The matches take place at the pitch near Selkirk, in the Scottish Borders. Tickets include park and ride from Selkirk. Ticketing enquiries should be made to firstname.lastname@example.org. For full details about Forest Pitch see www.forestpitch.org/.
