Amazon Prime Video, the video streaming service from Amazon.com, Inc. AMZN, continues to grow in importance in Italian football.
After Amazon Prime Video secures exclusive rights to UEFA Champions League matches in Italy for the 2021-24 cycle, it will release All Or Nothing: Juventus, a sports documentary series that looks behind the scenes of the Serie A champions.
All or nothing: As reported by Tv Blog for the first time, Juventus will contain original content from training courses, national and international competitions, locker room discussions and player meetings with the technical staff.
The show will also feature Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the most successful athletes in sports history and the first soccer player to make $ 1 billion.
Thanks to its 36 Scudetti, Juventus is the most successful football club in Italian football history and the one with the largest sports fan base in the country.
Statista estimates that the Turin-based club has 8.7 million fans across Italy, more than twice as many as Inter (3.9 million) and AC Milan (3.8 million).
Juventus will be the first Serie A club to feature on Amazon Prime Video’s All Or Nothing, adding their name to a list of four other soccer teams.
Two of these series focused on the English Premier League teams Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur, with an emphasis on legendary managers Joseph “Pep” Guardiola and José Mourinho. All or nothing: the Brazilian national team followed Brazil, the national team with the most FIFA World Cup titles, and a chapter on Bundesliga giants and reigning UEFA Champions League champions Bayern Munich is underway in 2021.
Juventus was previously the subject of documentation. It was in 2018 when the American streaming platform Netflix released NFLX First Team, a six-part show on the Bianconeri, their manager Massimiliano Allegri and star players like current Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba and Inter Miami CF striker Gonzalo Higuaín .

In keeping with the format used by Amazon Prime Video for other clubs, All Or Nothing: Juventus doesn’t just show footage of football actions. It also offers a glimpse into the lives of professional Juventus players, including Texas-born Weston McKennie and the most visited athlete in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo.
The 36-year-old Ronaldo has always been lauded for his phenomenal work ethic, which he combined with innate talent to break all possible records in football.
Ronaldo is the UEFA Champions League’s top scorer with 134 goals in 175 games. He is 15 goals ahead of his opponent Lionel Messi.
Of his total of 765 career goals, more than 300 have been achieved after his 30th birthday. This is evidence that his strong mindset enables him to be a differentiator at the highest level, even at an age when most soccer players would retire.

In addition to trying to grow the Bianconeri community, the documentaries All Or Nothing: Juventus are expected to bring huge benefits to Juventus from a financial perspective.
According to The Telegraph, Manchester City raised approximately £ 10 million ($ 14 million) from the screening of All Or Nothing: Manchester City three seasons ago.
Commercial revenue for Tottenham Hotspur has also increased in 2020 thanks to the Amazon Prime Video show, as stated in the Deloitte Football Money League 2021 financial analysis.
All or nothing: Juventus is expected to be released at the end of the 2020/21 season.
