Disney + has announced that David Beckham will star in the documentary series Save Our Squad, a moving production in which the athlete explores his roots and returns to the football fields of East London where he played as a child.

Beckham and his team will take these players, their coach and their community on a life-changing adventure that will change their lives forever. Sean Doyle will executive produce the series, co-produced by Twenty Twenty and Studio 99.
“It is wonderful to do Save Our Squad with Twenty Twenty to shed light on the type of football I played growing up and that meant so much to me early in my football career. I have been very fortunate because my playing career has been long. and full of successes. And now I have the wonderful opportunity to give back to those communities all that they have given me by becoming their mentor. Developing and protecting the talent of the youngest is very important in soccer and it is absolutely great to work with Disney + in this project, “declared Beckham.
“We are excited to welcome David Beckham to Disney +. It is a fantastic opportunity to show the importance and impact of football in UK communities. The series will be exciting, dramatic, inspiring and full of passion and courage, everything that David demonstrated on the field as a player, “added Doyle.
