Ever since the “Jena Rules” of January 1, 1893, which are among the oldest in the world apart from the Cambridge Rules, football has been played throughout the world without any trees or shrubs on the pitch. Something which sounds banal today paved the way for football back then. Even today, FCC play on the very areas beside the Saale river that once forced the invention of the rule. Incidentally, the Jena Rule was the answer to the twelfth question in one of the most-watched TV broadcasts ever. In the World Cup Special of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” on May 28, 2006, Hape Kerkeling alias Horst Schlämmer proudly gave the correct answer in front of 13.75 million viewers.
