Disney is making a new documentary on the Dutch Football Club, Feyenoord for Disney+. According to Voetbal International, production is currently underway and the filmmakers have behind the scenes access to how the club runs, how the player’s train at their complex and much more
The first episodes from the season are due to come to Disney+ before the winter break, with more episodes to follow at a later date.
Disney is paying Feyenoord, €3 million to film the documentary. Which obviously will be a big help to the football club with revenues down due to having fewer spectators in their matches due to social distancing and lost revenue from missed matches from the last season ending early due to the Coronavirus.
Documentaries on popular football teams have already been appearing on other streaming platforms, with Netflix’s Sunderland ‘Til I Die and Amazon’s All or Nothing.
Filming back last week during the opening season game against PEC Zwolle last weekend and the documentary will continue to film throughout the rest of the season.
Feyenoord is one of the most successful clubs in Dutch football, winning 15 Eredivisie titles, 13 KNVB Cups, and 4 Johan Cruyff Shields. Internationally, it has won one European Cup, two UEFA Cups, and one Intercontinental Cup.
It’s not been confirmed if this title will be available outside of the Netherlands, but with a large international audience who love football, hopefully, Disney will announce this show officially soon. The show should also help towards the quota of content that needs to be created in Europe for Disney+ to comply with the European Union rules.
