ESPN+ releases LAFC documentary

ESPN+ and Major League Soccer team Los Angeles FC on Monday released We Are LAFC, a 10-part all-access documentary series available via Disney OTT service ESPN+.

The series is the latest in a growing list of club soccer fly-on-the-wall type series that have been released within the last 18 months. First Team: Juventus and Sunderland ‘Til I Die on Netflix and Amazon Prime’s  All or Nothing: Manchester City documentary series have all been well received by fans. Now MLS has its first entry into this growing genre of on-demand soccer media coverage.

We Are LAFC is available in both English and Spanish via the ESPN+ platform.

We faced a unique challenge to create absolutely everything from scratch,” said LAFC president and co-owner Tom Penn. “So we engaged our most passionate fans and supporters and involved them in each step of the journey. ESPN+ and Mandalay Sports Media did a terrific job of telling the story of our historic beginning.”

The series chronicles LAFC’s first MLS season in 2018 which culminated in the expansion franchise qualifying for the postseason.
