Major League Soccer and ESPN+ are co-producing a ten-part reality series called We Are LAFC. The show focuses on the LAFC franchise and covers everything from Los Angeles being awarded an expansion franchise to making the playoffs in its first season of existence.
ESPN+ dropped all ten episodes today. There is also a version of the show for the Spanish-speaking audience called Somos LAFC.
“We faced a unique challenge to create absolutely everything from scratch,” LAFC President and Co-Owner Tom Penn said in a press release. “So we engaged our most passionate fans and supporters and involved them in each step of the journey. ESPN+ and Mandalay Sports Media did a terrific job of telling the story of our historic beginning.”
The release of the show is timed to coincide with the start of a new MLS season. LAFC’s first game of the season will be Sunday, March 3 against Sporting KC. That game will air on ESPN.
