Manchester United All or Nothing: Amazon Prime and Netflix to battle it out for 'fly on the wall' docu-series

Since it originally aired in 2018, Manchester United fans have been clamouring for an Amazon Prime All or Nothing style docu-series, and that dream could soon become reality.

As reported by Daniel Cutts, Netflix and Amazon Prime are in a bidding war over signing Manchester United to a reveal-all documentary, All or Nothing style.

The documentary would provide a never seen before look behind the scenes at Old Trafford, looking at Erik ten Hag’s efforts to rebuild the club.

With the Glazer family closer than ever to selling the club, this would be another storyline that the potential docuseries could showcase. 

It is reported that bosses of the two streaming services are willing to pay millions for a docu-series based around the Red Devils, which could be the biggest one yet.

A source said: “The story of the rebuild of Manchester United under Erik ten Hag, the future of Cristiano Ronaldo and the campaign to remove the Glazer family from the club is like a Hollywood movie in itself.

“That's why the club has become the new target for both Amazon Prime and Netflix producers and offers have gone in several times.

“Producers have made great play of the fact a programme would be a chance for the directors to show a different side to their role at the club, much like the way Arsenal’s owners did in All or Nothing.

“So far United haven’t given the idea the green light. But the interest remains strong and is unlikely to go away.”

In the past, club bosses have been firm on their All or Nothing stance, not even allowing Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal to film inside away changing rooms at Old Trafford for their series’.

But change is clearly happening at the club, and the two streaming giants would not be competing for such a spectacle had Manchester United not indicated in some way they were willing to allow one.

“Amazon paid about £10m for the All or Nothing series. But producers would be willing to go much, much more than that if they could get access to the biggest club in the world.

“Viewers from China to America to Manchester would be tuning in if they could pull it off.

“Fly on the wall football shows are very much in fashion at the moment and Amazon and Netflix want to show more and more of them.

“Most top clubs have their own TV channel these days but they don’t show the true inside story of what goes on, which is why fly on the wall programmes are proving to be so popular right now.”

It is reported that Amazon also want to film Newcastle United next season, to showcase life at the club following the takeover. United could potentially be done in the season after.

Whilst in recent seasons United have been more fitting of a Disney+ documentary, they are starting to get going a little under new coach Erik ten Hag.

There is still, of course, a mountain of work that needs doing at the club. It is hoped that the reported 100 million signing of Brazilian winger Antony will help this.
