The film is being billed as the German version of Time for Heroes, a documentary celebrating Hibs’ 2016 Scottish Cup final win against Rangers after a 114-year wait for the trophy.

The connection between the clubs started in 2007 when one fan started going to Eintracht’s home and away games while living there, and numbers have been steadily growing.

Friendships have developed between Hibs fans and various Eintracht fan groups and there have been countless Frankfurt supporters coming to watch Hibs.
