Redskins launch six-episode documentary series about Canadian soccer star Alphonso Davies

When Alphonso Davies signed with Bayern Munich this summer, most of the questions surrounding the 17-year-old Canadian soccer star weren’t related to what soccer he was or hadn’t yet experienced.

Instead, many of the queries focused on where the teenager came from—is he a Canadian citizen, or was he born in the U.S.? Was he the first American-born soccer player to play for a top-flight European team? And was he likely to continue his career in Europe?

To dispel some of those lingering questions, the National Football League’s Washington Redskins this week announced a six-episode documentary series created by the Bayern youth academy that will be available on Verizon’s Go90 streaming service.

The documentary series will be called Not Scared, and is a joint venture between the NFL, Real Madrid and Bayern. The show will provide insight into how Davies and his family came to America, and what’s next for the soccer star after he leaves Bayern at the end of the season.

“We are extremely pleased to provide our platform to show Alphonso’s story,” Redskins CEO Bruce Allen said in a statement. “Thanks to all of the NFL fans who get to see the show, we hope that Alphonso will do the rest of his career right.”

The show, which hasn’t yet been named, will premiere in November.
