The documentary is exclusive for Prime video and it is going to give Bayern Munich fans a chance to see the behind the scenes efforts of Bayern’s Champions League victory over Paris Saint-Germain.

In the documentary, influential figures such as Karl-Heinze Rummenigge, Oliver Kahn, Uli Hoeneb, and Hasan Salihamidzic all get their camera time as it shows all of the great people that make Bayern Munich the powerhouse of world football. Also, the documentary shows the history of the club as well as some of its most famous moments and what other people’s thoughts are towards the club.

Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge spoke about the upcoming documentary:

“We are proud to be able to tell the story of FC Bayern with this documentary because it is a great success story – from the tradition-rich past to the present with its great sporting successes to our ambitious future,” “Especially now, when Corona 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, who is a Bayern board member had his say too:

“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 the 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, who is the managing director of Prime Video Germany spoke about what to expect from the documentary:

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

 Quirin Berg, the CEO and Executive Producer of W&B Television had his say on the project.

“Amazon, FC Bayern, and we have been in dialogue about such a project for several years”, he said. “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!”

 It is certainly going to be must-watch TV for any football fan when the documentary is released.
