As a former player, coach and agent, Duncan Oughton knows a thing or two about soccer. Now with a local pint in hand he’ll discover how much the sport still has to teach him as he is thrown into footie cultures around the globe.
Vision for the show:
An inspired mix of a soccer-themed Top Gear and CNN’s Parts Unknown, Soccer & Beer is a self-contained docu-series that explores: diverse soccer cultures around the globe, the football team(s) they support as well as the spirits and libations that help them celebrate. In some episodes, Duncan assumes an internal role at the club he visits: for example, learning how to design a stadium, becoming a sideline medic or filling in as the team mascot, Duncan never misses an opportunity to find a new angle into the game. In each episode, our host always takes his audience on a deep dive into the local cultures around the globe.
