Netflix teams had full access to the stadiums to film every moment of the competition.
Netflix released on Friday the trailer for its upcoming documentary series “Captains of the World Cup.”
The series was filmed during last year’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar, with the participation of captains from several competing teams, including Morocco’s Romain Saiss.
Netflix promises exclusive footage and access to relive the Atlas Lions’ historic 2022 World Cup adventure.
In this new documentary series, “Captains of the World Cup recounts some of the most gripping moments of the 2022 FIFA World Cup “with exclusive footage and access,” said the streaming leader.
During the footage, Netflix’s cameras followed the teams at close quarters, among which the Moroccan selection with the captain Romain Saiss one of the luminaries, alongside Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Thiago Silva.
With full access from the dressing room to the pitch, the Netflix crews were able to follow the Atlas Lion everywhere, according to The Telegraph, which first announced the news in 2022.
“Access-all-areas filming of Saiss, who was an injury doubt for the France match after being stretchered off injured against Portugal, is expected to be the most compelling storyline,” reported the British daily.
With the exception of the date of the premiere of the first episode, Netflix has not yet released any other information. “Captains of the World Cup” will be available on the streaming platform starting December 30.
Saiss, 33, was a standout performer and commanding captain as the Moroccan Atlas Lions defied all odds to become the first African and Arab national team in last year’s global tournament.
