City confirm Amazon deal for Liverpool-style documentary series

City confirm Amazon deal for Liverpool-style documentary series

City was bought by Sheikh Mansour in 2008 and is one of the wealthiest clubs in the world, with a squad worth hundreds of millions of pounds.

Manchester United suffered a blow to their Premier League title hopes on Sunday when they were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge to leave them eight points behind their bitter local rivals.

The news will spark reminders of the deal Liverpool struck with Fox Soccer, which was broadcast in the United Kingdom by Channel 5.

The series will launch exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in 2018.

The ground-breaking, multi-episode series will follow the Club throughout the current campaign, offering fans an insight into the day-to-day workings at the City Football Academy and the lives of Pep Guardiola and his players. It chronicle's Manchester City's 2017/18 season from the world-leading training facilities at the City Football Academy, to interviews with the manager and executive meetings.

There is a widespread expectation that the likes of Amazon and Facebook will enter the bidding war when the next round of Premier League television rights comes up for tender.

The Blues fought off competition from Manchester United and AC Milan to sign Morata on a club-record fee in the summer from Real Madrid.

He also expressed his thoughts on Chelsea's youth setup, by further adding: "I fought, I reached the first team". "I think anecdotally there was strong interest in the last cycle".

"We are going to see an increasing engagement from those organisations and it is going to be increasingly important to digitally engage with fans".
