Football In Film
If you are one of the billions of football fans on the planet there’s little doubt that you’ve seen, or at least heard of, one or more football related films that have graced the silver screen. From the best comedies to documentaries, the glorious game has been filmed at every angle, this infographic is a guide to some of the better known football movies of all time.
It starts with the films that have grossed the most money at the box office. However, just because they made the most money doesn’t mean they are necessarily the best movies. If you prefer to watch films about the managers or the fans, rather than the players, the infographic includes those too.
As most of the films aren’t new releases you may need to turn to streaming to get a viewing, but that’s not a problem as we’ve provided a quick look at which are currently available on Netflix.
Professional footballers have changed their arm at acting, with players such as Vinnie Jones making it big, others like Ian Wright haven’t been so successful, unfortunately his skills on the pitch didn’t translate to the big screen.
You will be spoilt for choice with so many different types of football films to watch, so whether you want to laugh, cry or discover more about your footballing hero you’ll find a movie to feed your passion.
