Netflix might not be in the live sports business but the streamer is certainly planning a lot of athletic content.
The streamer has ordered new docuseries about the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and the Six Nations rugby tournament as part of its latest slate of sports-adjacent content, per Deadline.
The new orders build on Formula 1: Drive to Survive, which is returning to Netflix for its fifth season on Feb. 24.
The untitled soccer series will feature exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of all 32 teams from the tournament, which was won by Lionel Messi’s Argentina. The Six Nations series will also take an inside look at the international rugby tournament.
The World Cup series, which is produced by The Late Late Show with James Corden producer Fulwell 73 in partnership with FIFA+, will launch later this year.
Six Nations, coming in 2024, will be filmed across the 2023 Guinness Six Nations Championship with access to every team in the competition including England, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales. It comes from the team behind Formula 1: Drive to Survive.
Elsewhere, tennis series Break Point debuts on Jan. 13, golf series Full Swing tees off on Feb. 15 and there’s a 2022 Tour de France series and an Invictus Games series coming later this year.
“This eclectic group of new and returning series reinforces that we are committed to delivering the best sports stories to our fans,” said Brandon Riegg, VP, Unscripted and Documentary Series, Netflix. “By going behind-the-scenes of the world’s biggest sporting events with unprecedented access, we have a unique opportunity to share the triumphs, tribulations and drama of these iconic moments with our hundreds of millions of global members.”
