Borussia Dortmund Docuseries for Rakuten TV


Rakuten TV is set to launch BVB 09 Stories: Who We Are, a documentary series that provides unfiltered insights into Borussia Dortmund FC.

Over ten episodes, Borussia Dortmund fans will learn about the lives and experiences of the players and the German football club. Each story will address realities that the players are faced with—from missing home, strain on relationships, feelings of being uprooted and being under immense pressure to their hopes, shared values and more.

The first four episodes of BVB 09 Stories: Who We Are will be available on the free section of Rakuten TV on May 27. New episodes will arrive every month.

BVB 09 Stories: Who We Are features footage of the players’ day-to-day lives at the training field, board offices and stadiums, and testimonials from the players and personalities surrounding the BVB world. The audience will see how Covid-19 has impacted the team, as players reveal their biggest fears and uncertainties and will retrace the victories and challenges that they have faced over the past year.

Episodes one to four present the stories of Erling Haaland and his father; and former football players Alfie Haaland, Marco Reus, Emre Can, Julian Brandt, Giovanni Reyna, Mo Dahoud, Lars Ricken and Yousouffa Moukoko. The following episodes will be released monthly to coincide with the football season and will feature the stories and testimonies of star players, including Jude Bellingham, Jürgen Klopp, Mats Hummels, Axel Witsel, Thomas Meunier, Lukasz Piszczek, Thorgan Hazard, Roman Bürki, Marcel Schmelzer and Roman Weidenfeller, and also hear from those around them including Aki Watzke (CEO of BVB) and Carsten Cramer (managing director at BVB).
