Disko Island is just off the west coast of Greenland. It has a population of approximately 1,200. It has an area of 8,578 km2 (3,312.0 sq mi), making it the second largest island of Greenland (after the main island of Greenland) and one of the 100 largest islands in the world. The vast majority of the landmass is rock. But the soccer hungry people of the island built a top quality football pitch on a beach.
While the soccer game is on spectators can enjoy the beautiful scenery, especially the icebergs just offshore. And every so often whales can be seen breaching the surface and blowing water out of their blowholes.
