English Premier League football club Manchester City has today (Thursday) signed a content partnership with internet company Amazon which will result in the production of a behind-the-scenes series for its Prime subscription service.
The multi-part series will follow City throughout the ongoing 2017-18 season, offering fans a glimpse into the club, its coach Pep Guardiola and the week-on-week stories that unfold within the lives of the players.
The series will launch exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in 2018. It will be a global release and available on Amazon Prime Video for members to watch via the Prime Video app or online at PrimeVideo.com in more than 200 countries and territories.
The show joins Prime Video’s growing stable of Amazon Original sports entertainment shows including two series of All Or Nothing, which follows the Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Rams over an entire season in the NFL American football league, New Zealand rugby union team the All Blacks, Formula One motor racing team McLaren, and live streaming of NFL Thursday Night Football and the Next Gen Finals of men’s tennis tour the ATP.
Ferran Soriano, chief executive of Manchester City, said: “Amazon Prime Video is the perfect home for a ground-breaking project that will offer a unique and authentic inside view into Manchester City’s season like never before. This is an extremely exciting time for Manchester City and through Amazon’s world-class service, we will be able to share it with football fans all over the world.”
