Disney has announced that the Searchlight Pictures film “Next Goal Wins” will be released on Disney+ in the United Kingdom and Ireland 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 and Waititi and Iain Morris wrote it.

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

Many of the recent releases from Searchlight Pictures including “All Of Us Strangers”, “Poor Things” and “Next Goal Wins” have had a stretched out international release in cinemas, which has also impacted on when these films have been made available on digital platforms, physical media and on Disney+. Which is why the film has already been made available to stream in the United States and Canada.
