Sven-Goran Eriksson doc coming to Prime Video

March 14, 2024

Prime Video has announced a documentary about football legend Sven-Goran Eriksson, set to launch on the streaming service in the UK, Ireland and Nordics later this year. Titled Sven, the documentary will follow the highs and lows of the first foreign manager of the England National Team throughout his entire career.

Following the rise (and tabloid emblazoned fall) of the former England manager, intertwined with the moving reality of Eriksson’s terminal cancer diagnosis, the documentary will feature contributions from the likes of David Beckham, Wayne Rooney, Roberto Mancini, Kasper Schmeichel, Nancy Dell’Olio and Faria Alam.

Speaking on-stage to unveil the documentary at a Prime Video Presents event in Sweden, Eriksson said: “People interested in sports will likely know me and my career already, but the documentary also tells the truth – which hasn’t always been portrayed in the tabloids. It takes time to make a documentary but it has been a very exciting and fun process. The documentary tells the truth of what happened during my career”.

Sven is produced by Whisper and Up&Away Film Entertainment, directed by Claudia Corbisiero, produced by Chris Grubb and Drew Masters and executive produced by James Quinn for Up&Away, and Sunil Patel and Mark Cole for Whisper.
