YouTube is collaborating with Whistle Sports on a brand new soccer series expected to premiere on YouTube Premium, formerly known as YouTube Red. The two companies have teamed up with The F2Freestylers for “F2 Finding Football,” a new original series produced by Whistle Sports that will premiere on the F2Freestyler’s YouTube Channel, which has earned over 1.3 billion lifetime views.
The series will follow soccer skill pioneers Billy Wingrove and Jeremy Lynch (The F2), who bring together the best in football talent and celebrity guests while exploring the beautiful game and unique pitches around the world in Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Iceland, France, Thailand and more.
“At YouTube, we are continuing to invest in incredible European creators and the stories they want to share with the whole world,” said Luke Hyams, Head of YouTube Originals in EMEA. “‘F2 Finding Football’ is a show that will captivate global audiences as it explores the many ways people are inspired by the beautiful game in some of the most football-obsessed countries in the world. The series also gives The F2 the opportunity to show off their incredible skills (or tekkers) as never before in some incredible locations around the world alongside some very special guest stars!”
The first episode, premiering on June 13, will be free for the public to view as well as the second episode which will air soon after. The remaining episodes will be available with an upgrade to YouTube Premium which costs $11.99/mo, which, in addition to original content, offers access to YouTube’s music service.
