ESPN announces "30 for 30: Soccer Stories" film series to air during World Cup buildup | SIDELINE
ESPN Films' "30 for 30" film series is going all-in for this summer's World Cup in Brazil.
The Worldwide Leader announced on Saturday a two-month long, soccer-specific film series, entitled 30 for 30: Soccer Stories, which will consist of a pair of feature-length films and six half-hour documentary films that will cast the net far and wide over some the games most famous — and infamous — events.
Soccer Stories will kick off in April and serve as a cornerstone of ESPN's soccer content surrounding the World Cup itself.
Among some of the film titles for this spring's soccer mini-series are "Hillsborough," "White, Blue and White," — a feature on the Falklands War between Argentina and England, and the effect it had on a pair of Argentinian stars playing for Tottenham at the time — "Barbosa – The Man Who Made All of Brazil Cry," "Ceasefire Massacre" and "Maradona ’86."
ESPN has not yet released a trailer for any of the Soccer Stories films, but you can bet that when they do, you'll be able to find them on MLSsoccer.com.
