Take note.

The soccer world It is exciting. The beautiful game is not just 11 people behind a ball (well, technically 22); It concerns a whole huge machinery behind that we are often not aware of. So that you know a little more about the ins and outs of this sport (and business), we suggest some of our favorite documentaries -yes, at El Output we are very soccer fans, we don’t hide.

In Movistar+

On the Movistar+ platform we are clear: The League of Extraordinary Men It is undoubtedly one of the best documentaries that currently exist on this sport. The piece, made up of 5 episodes, reviews part of the history of Spanish football through the eyes of several of its protagonists. The special thing is that it is not about the players themselves but about managers who have had the presidencies of different Spanish clubs in their hands, which provides a less interesting look – especially when talking about unpopular or controversial issues.

Directed by Alejandro Marzoa, it is well worth seeing and meeting Augusto César Lendoiro, José María Caneda, Manuel Ruiz de Lopera, Joan Gaspart and José María del Nido. Safety pin. You will love it, sure.

On Amazon Prime Video

Within the Amazon catalog, we also find good documentaries related to soccer. Our favourites, without a doubt, are those of the Serie All or Nothing. It has several seasons (each one dedicated to a team) and although it is true that it will bring out little of our patriotic feeling since they are all foreign kits (Tottenham Hotspur with Mourinho, Manchester City de Guardiola…), it offers us a very good vision of how they are managed from within, with a special focus on their coach.

The best thing about this series is that since there are several chapters focused on the same team, the season is monitored, making it very exciting to see how things are going throughout the league and the decisions they are making based on the results.

Another documentary that you will love is six dreams. Don’t let the title fool you: it is a narrative focused on our country with the monitoring of various relatively current soccer figures (it was filmed in the 2017-2018 season). We will see what the day-to-day life of several First Division players, a coach, a manager and a team president is like.

You are going to have to put your hand on your chest to press play. And it is that in Amazon Prime Video it is also The strength of the group, a documentary focused on the 2020 Euro Cup (which was not exactly an easy championship) in which we focus on our beloved team, the Spanish soccer team. Of all the proposals in this article, it is undoubtedly the one that most world body it’s going to make you (and probably more nervous). Let’s go!

on netflix

Within the red platform there are several documentaries focused on the world of football but if you have to keep one, possibly The Figo case be one of the most interesting. Why? Well, because it focuses on one of the most epic and scandalous moments in the recent history of our favorite sport: the signing of Luis Figo, then a Barça player, by Real Madrid.

We will see how the controversial agreement was created and, of course, we will listen to the testimonies of all the parties involved, including, of course, the protagonist, Figo.

on HBO Max

The HBO Max platform is the one that has focused the least on soccer when it comes to choosing documentaries to offer its subscribers, but, if you accept boat as aquatic animalwe will tell you that you should take a look at the pioneer.

This documentary, focused on the figure of Jesús Gil, reviews the life of this popular political and business figure who was so closely linked to the world of football through Atlético de Madrid (of which he was president). It is the closest thing on the streaming platform to the king of sports and consists of 4 episodes.
