Maybe it's some local football game? You would need a professional, maybe by the players' clothes, he could tell what team it was and what city it came from. Socks with distinctive patterns?

The topic is very complexe, if you want to get involved with it, you will often find what you are looking for...

Sport was politics under the Nazi regime, "Herrenmenschen" versus "Untermenschen", it was just like that,
very simple, very radical, very pathetic.
