Disney has announced that the Searchlight Pictures film “Next Goal Wins”, will be released on Disney+ in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand on Wednesday, 27th March 2024.

Based on a true story, this heartfelt underdog comedy follows the American Samoa soccer team, infamous for their brutal 31-0 FIFA loss in 2001. With the World Cup qualifiers fast approaching, the team hires down-on-his-luck, maverick coach Thomas Rongen (Michael Fassbender), hoping he will turn the world’s worst soccer team into winners.

Academy Award winner Taika Waititi (Best Adapted Screenplay, 2019, “Jojo Rabbit”) directed this heartfelt, underdog comedy based on a true story, which Waititi and Iain Morris wrote.

This funny, uplifting film also features Oscar Kightley, Kaimana, David Fane, and Rachel House, with Will Arnett and Elisabeth Moss.

While the film was released on Disney+ in the US and Canada last month, the film has taken a little longer to be released in some countries including the UK and Australia, because the movie had a stretched out international release in cinemas.
