James R | On 18, Dec 2022
Apple TV+ is delving into the world of footballing politics for new series Super League: The War for Football, arriving in January.
The four-part series will document the high-stakes battle that is set off when plans for a breakaway league emerge and the past, present and future of European football collide, leaving the game’s most powerful leaders to defend, or upend, the traditions of the sport. With unprecedented access to league presidents, club owners and the architects behind the European Super League, the docuseries brings fans the yet untold story of how and why this idea was hatched and the battle plans that were formed to fight it.
The series is directed and executive produced by All Rise Films’ Jeff Zimbalist (The Two Escobars, The Line, Momentum Generation) and executive produced by Words + Pictures’ Connor Schell and produced by Libby Geist (The Last Dance, 30 for 30, OJ Made in America).
The series will kick off on 13th January, when all four episodes will arrive on Apple TV+ at once. Here’s the trailer:
