Liverpool grant cameras unprecedented dressing-room access for documentary
Liverpool have announced they are to allow access to American broadcaster FOX Soccer for a behind-the-scenes documentary.
Cameras will be given unprecedented dressing-room access at Anfield to film what will be a six-part documentary entitled Our Liverpool: Never Walk Alone.
Filming is due to begin next month in order to capture preparations for the FA Cup final against Chelsea, as well as documenting the Wembley showpiece itself.
Liverpool chairman Tom Werner said: "I expect it will be compelling programming as Liverpool will provide unprecedented access.
"This will be an amazing opportunity for our fans to see a new side of the club and for us to reach out to many more potential supporters around the world who will come to understand what makes Liverpool FC so special."
The TV crew will also cover Liverpool's pre-season tour to the United States and Canada, which kicks off against Toronto FC on 21 July at the 47,000-capacity Rogers Centre.
Liverpool have described the documentary as "a first for any broadcaster in the world of football." Although such access, and the results of the filming, are bound to draw comparisons with the warts and all BBC documentary Queens Park Rangers: The Four Year Plan. The incredible access granted at Loftus Road made for some unforgettable, and rather embarrassing footage of the former QPR regime - something Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group will be keen to avoid.
Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre said: "This project creates a fantastic opportunity to allow people across the world to have a glimpse of the inner workings of the club following the lives of our staff, our players and our fans, all of whom make up everything that is Liverpool Football Club."
