‘South of the River’ Is a New Documentary Series Profiling the Rise of South London Ballers


BT Sport is dropping a new documentary series exploring the reasons behind South London’s rise to prominence as the home of football’s biggest new talents.

‘South of the River’ is a three-part series that will uncover the stories of the young stars who, in the last three years, have emerged from statistically underprivileged postcodes of South London to redefine the way the world sees English players.

The series will look at the rise of players like Jadon Sancho, Joe Gomez, Tammy Abraham, Declan Rice and more – with Rio Ferdinand, who grew up in Peckham, also contributing to the show.

The films will feature powerful contributions from the people who turned South London into the ‘Concrete Catalonia’ such as coaches, scouts, community leaders, friends and family, and the players themselves.

‘South of the River’ will premiere on November 23.
