First episode of ‘Together: Champions Again!’ documentary set for release

The first episode of a new documentary series providing behind-the-scenes access to Manchester City’s 2021/22 Premier League title-winning season will be released later today.

Together: Champions Again! is the sequel to the iconic feature-length film, Together, which captured the final 45 days of the 2020/21 campaign.

The latest production from City Studios, it offers fans an exclusive, inside perspective of how the drama unfolded across the entire season.

The first instalment of the seven-part series will be released at 18:00 (UK) on Wednesday 27 July and is available to watch on CITY+ and the official Man City Recast channel.

This series captures the true spirit of what ‘together’ means to City fans and players after being separated for an extended period during the COVID-19 pandemic.

With supporters back at the Etihad Stadium, it highlights the key moments of bond and unity during the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League campaigns.

Beginning at the very start of the 2021/22 season, Together: Champions Again! charts the Club’s journey to back-to-back titles.

With never before seen footage of the squad’s daily lives and routines, the documentary reveals how the players stay at the top of their game and their feelings around decisive and key moments of the season.

In episode one, Pep Guardiola delivers an improvised speech at training to motivate the players during the ‘week of all weeks’ ahead of matches against Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool.

We also see what it’s like to join the English champions as Jack Grealish experiences his first day at the Club, whilst the practical jokes of Kevin De Bruyne and Kyle Walker provide a true insight into the close relationships formed within the team.

“This series completely embodies who we are as a club,” said Ilkay Gundogan.

“It’s a tribute to the togetherness and level of trust we have within the team as well as the hard work that goes on behind the scenes.

“Last season pushed us like never before and we were grateful to have our fans back alongside us to face new challenges and win more trophies. I hope they enjoy the series and feel closer to the Club as we get ready for another exciting season ahead.”

Gavin Johnson, Media Director at City Football Group, added: “We are delighted to release this series today for our fans across the globe.

“The success of the feature-length film Together motivated us to dive even deeper into the special team dynamics at the Club in a seven-episode production, giving fans an up-close and personal look into the world of Manchester City.

“This season, our small crew was able to capture more unique behind-the-scenes moments throughout the entire campaign, and we are excited to present to fans a new, unparalleled insight into the Premier League champions.”
