The theme from the Great Escape is an unofficial anthem for the English soccer team.

At every England game there is a official supporters band which plays various songs, before/during and after a game, to build up the fans.

One of them is the theme from the Great Escape. It is a very popular song and speaking from personal experience great when your watching England :0)

I could understand if they used the other "great" escape world war II movie more.. That being.. Victory!
A friend of mine always says, if he ever goes to prison, the first thing he is doing is organizing a soccer game.

The UK limited edition version of the Great Escape SE(slightly more expensive) has an extra menu with 2 extras a 5 minute feature on the England supporters band as Jonathan mentions above and a spoof ad for the England soccer replica kit based on the Great Escape.

You also get a 5 foot by 3 foot union (England) flag !

Surely it's just an England flag, Malcolm? The Union Flag is totally different...Or am I going mad?

Your are correct Theo

It is the England flag of St George, red cross on white background. I am sure our colleagues elsewhere in the UK would get upset otherwise !
