Amazon Prime announced a four-part series that follows the Paris Saint-Germain soccer team, beefing up the streamers original sports content section. Directed by Manuel Herrero and produced with CAPA and PSG TV, the series will use fifty years of archival material, interviews with players - past and present - with footage from the most recent season.

The French soccer team, which was founded in 1970, is most notable for winning six of the last seven national Ligue 1 championships. However, since 2011, the team has been run by Qatar Sports Investments - a controversial play argued that the team is “effectively run by a country”.

With the hundreds of millions of dollars pumped into the team by Qatar for operational costs and player transfers. - their most notable trade was Neymar in 2017 for 250 million dollars (world record transfer fee). Other notable players include Ronaldinho, Beckham, and Ibrahimovic.

The series is set to be released in late 2020 on Amazon, excluding China and the Middle East, joining other sports-related content including All or Nothing: Manchester City and All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur.
