Amazon Prime Video has released a new documentary series focusing on Manchester United’s treble winning season in 1999.
The broadcaster has already worked with Arsenal in their ground-breaking All or Nothing series, Tottenham and Manchester City, along with other features on the All Blacks rugby team and Borussia Dortmund.
Now they have been given access to cover the history of Man United’s most successful season ever.
There are few details about how the series will work, which Amazon announced on Thursday, but it will likely follow a similar format to other clubs they have worked with.
United lifted the Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup titles in 99′, becoming the first and currently only English team to do so.

Moments such as their iconic last-minute comeback victory over Bayern Munich in the European Cup semi-final, Ryan Giggs’ wondergoal against Arsenal in the Cup and their one-point win over the Gunners for the title of league will focus on everything.
Interviews with title-winning manager Sir Alex Ferguson and some of the club’s treble-winning team such as David Beckham, Gary Neville, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may also be included.
Manchester United have made no official post about the new series suggesting it will not feature any of the club’s current crop of stars or feature behind-the-scenes footage from the dressing room.
The show will air in 2024, however, no information about a specific date or how many episodes will be included in the series has been released.

The documentary could eventually pave the way for more access to be given to United, with Amazon and Netflix previously rumored to be vying to secure a fly-on-the-wall filming deal with the Premier League giants .
Former Man United player Paul Pogba has angered his old club when he signed a deal with Amazon for a series focusing on his turmoil last season at Old Trafford and his reasons for leaving.
Arch rivals Manchester City could become the second team to record three victories by the time the show hits television screens, with Pep Guardiola’s side having already secured the Premier League title and the final of FA Cup and Champions League.
Man United have a golden opportunity to deny City that chance when they meet at Wembley in the final on Saturday, June 3.
