Apple TV+ has announced a new sports documentary series titled Super League: The War for Football, set to premiere on January 13.

The four-part series will shine the light on the high-stakes battle that broke out when plans for a breakaway league emerge, leaving "the game’s most powerful leaders to defend, or upend, the traditions of the sport."

With unprecedented access to league Presidents, club owners, and the architects behind the European Super League, the docuseries brings fans the yet untold story of how and why this idea was hatched and the battle plans that were formed to fight it. 

Last April, 12 of the world's most powerful football clubs, including the likes of Manchester United, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Tottenham, and more, revealed plans to form a new competition that would rival the Champions League.

It was soon met with fierce opposition and concerns about elitism. Eventually, the project self-combusted as the six Premier League clubs caved to the criticism and pulled out.

The series is directed and executive produced by All Rise Films’ News & Documentary Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Jeff Zimbalist.
