DARMSTADT, Germany (AP) — Bundesliga side Darmstadt is inviting former U.S. President Barack Obama to one of its home games after announcing him as a Twitter follower of the struggling team.
The club says on Twitter, "Dear @BarackObama, since we are apparently already the only European soccer club you follow on Twitter: See you at our stadium?"
In a video attached to the tweet, Darmstadt's American forward Terrence Boyd presents a jersey with Obama's name on it and says it's a "huge honor" for the club to be followed by the former U.S. president.
The 25-year-old Boyd scored in Darmstadt's surprise 2-1 win at home over Borussia Dortmund last weekend.
Despite the win, Darmstadt remains bottom of the 18-team Bundesliga.
Darmstadt's enthusiasm came despite the fact that Obama's official Twitter feed is following more than 630,000 accounts on the platform.
