Football fans might know it already: From this season, FC Augsburg play in the Bundesliga – the top league! And it is not only the club that was promoted but Jim Button as well. After every goal Augsburg score the tune „Eine Insel mit zwei Bergen“ (“An Isle with Two Mountains”), will be played, the song from “Jim Button”, the famous classic from Augsburger Puppenkiste. In the ARD sports programme “Sportschau” on 6 August, the Jim Button puppet was even shown after a goal by Augsburg! Jim Button became a symbol and mascot for FC Augsburg when the club started cooperation with the puppet theatre of Augsburger Puppenkiste, probably the most famous attraction of the city. Jim and Luke are thrilled. And so are we!
