Manchester City agree seven-figure sum with Netflix over six-part Treble season docu-series



| Last Updated:


Streaming giants Netflix will unveil a six-part documentary series covering Manchester City’s historic Treble-winning season of 2022/23, it has been confirmed.

Pep Guardiola and his players wrote their names into the history books in a two-week period at the end of last season, by adding to a third successive Premier League title win through an FA Cup final win over Manchester United, and a UEFA Champions League win in Istanbul.

Rodri’s solitary goal at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in early June 2023 secured Manchester City their first ever Champions League title, and paved the way for the club to go on to win the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup in Greece and Saudi Arabia respectively last year.

But the on-field successes from the Premier League giants and the culmination of a 15-year plan to dominate the European game has now been added to by a landmark off-field moment for those working around the kings of the continent and the globe.

In a landmark moment for City and their continued rise in the global game, the Etihad Stadium club will become the first Premier League team to feature on Netflix, following on from huge success in the likes of Formula 1 and tennis.

It follows huge success from City’s in-house media team in their production of previous documentary series covering trophy-winning seasons, with the 2020/21 and 2021/22 seasons delivered to supporters and the wider football community.

As a direct result of the success of such productions, Manchester City’s own camera crew are now fully embedded into Pep Guardiola’s first team inner circle, and their journey last season has been snapped up by Netflix, it now been reported.

As revealed by Jack Gaughan and Mike Keegan of MailSport, Manchester City have sold the story of their historic Treble-winning season to streaming platform giants Netflix, in a seven-figure agreement.

It is detailed that Netflix will showcase behind-the-scenes access of Manchester City’s history-making season in a six-part documentary series, available across the globe from early next month and with a trailer expected to be unveiled this week.

Offering insight into the process, MailSport reveal that when Manchester City were approached by Netflix, the Premier League champions worked ‘in conjunction’ with production staff for ‘months’ in a ‘lengthy editing process’.

Simon Bajkowski of the Manchester Evening News further reports that while footage was pulled together by City’s in-house production company, there was ‘significant interest’ from external companies in buying the content.

With Netflix winning that race, it is further detailed that the full series will be available in ‘over 200 countries across the globe from April’, dubbed or sub-titled for various different markets.

Manchester City’s appearance on Netflix will be the second time they have featured on a globally-acclaimed streaming service, following on from the success of Amazon Prime’s ‘All or Nothing’ feature on the north-west giants.

‘All or Nothing: Manchester City’ became an Amazon Original docu-series covering Pep Guardiola’s 2017/18 season at the Etihad, in which they won two of four contested trophies and broke a series of Premier League performance-related records.

It was reported at the time that City had signed a deal with Amazon Prime worth more than £10 million for the behind-the-scenes TV series, which was narrated by Sir Ben Kingsley.
