A behind-the-scenes documentary on FC Bayern Munich is set to launch exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the fall.

Produced by W&B Television, the documentary will provide unprecedented insight into FC Bayern Munich through their 2020 Champions League final win in Lisbon to the end of the 2020/21 season. It will give viewers front row seats to the German record champions, treble winners and current most successful club in the world, as well as a look into the inner workings at Säbener Straße.

The documentary spotlights the people who have shaped FC Bayern Munic and made the club great—from the president to the groundsman, including Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Uli Hoeneß, Herbert Hainer, Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidžić. It also looks at the club’s history, its greatest moments, as well as how it is perceived by the wider footballing world.

FC Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. “We are proud to be able to tell the great success of FC Bayern through this documentary—from its rich past to the exciting present and ambitious future. Especially now, when the coronavirus is, unfortunately, forcing us to distance ourselves, this documentary is a wonderful opportunity for our fans to experience first-hand what is going on in our team and our club.”

Oliver Kahn, FC Bayern München board member, said: “This documentary is a great opportunity to expand FC Bayern’s global presence. We can reach millions of people with our story and get them excited about us. FC Bayern looks back on a gripping history, has been setting standards in top-class sport for decades and also has its sights firmly set on the future. We are always ready to break new ground. This documentary is another important step into the future of our club.”

Dr. Christoph Schneider, managing director Prime Video Germany, said: “With our Amazon sports documentaries, we have created benchmarks for access for sports fans. Now I’m delighted that we can show Prime members the great FC Bayern Munich up close and give them unprecedented insight. With our partners from W&B Television, we are getting closer to the German record champion and triple winner than ever before.”

Quirin Berg, executive producer and CEO at W&B Television, said: “Amazon, FC Bayern and W&B Television have been discussing this project for several years. This mission is as great as it is challenging and right now is the perfect time to tackle it. We are looking forward to a spectacular documentary!”
