German champions FC Bayern Munich have confirmed they will be the subject of a fly-on-the-wall documentary from Amazon Prime.
Although not confirmed, it is suspected the documentary will follow in the format of Amazon Prime Video's successful 'All or Nothing' series which has followed clubs including Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.
The documentary is set to highlight the German giants' impressive treble last year as well as this season's Club World Cup, training sessions, interviews with players and staff, executive committee meetings and negotiations, all in an effort to provide a behind-the-scenes view for fans on one of the biggest football clubs in the world.
Amazon will produce the documentary in collaboration with its partner W&B Television and is set to be broadcast in the autumn of 2021, exclusively on Amazon's Prime Video streaming service.
"With this documentary, we are proud to be telling the story of FC Bayern, because it is a great success story - from the rich historical tradition, our outstanding sporting successes, to our ambitious plans for the future," started Bayern chairman and CEO, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
"Especially now, with Corona unfortunately obliging us to keep our distance, this documentary is a wonderful opportunity for our fans to experience at first-hand what is going on in our team and at our club."
Dr Christoph Schneider, managing director of Prime Video Germany, added: With our Amazon sports documentaries, we have created benchmarks in terms of access for sports fans. Now I'm delighted we’ll be taking Prime members up close to the mighty FC Bayern Munich and giving them unprecedented insights. With our partners from W&B Television, we’ll come closer to the German record champions and treble winners than ever before."
It has been reported that both Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have pocketed £10 million from their series, which could be beneficial to Bayern Munich in a season that has seen them lose significant revenue from gate receipts as COVID-19 continues to prevent sports fans from watching live sports from venues.
