Sydney FC and Paramount+ has debuted the network’s first play into locally produced sporting documentaries, with a four-part exclusive behind-the-scenes look inside Sydney FC.
Narrated by Golden Globe winner and Sydney FC fan Anthony LaPaglia, the Paramount+ Original series, Sky Blue: Inside Sydney FC, takes viewers inside Sydney FC men’s and women’s teams during one of the most dramatic years in the club’s history – the 2021/22 A-League seasons.
Following losses for both teams in the 2021 Grand Final to arch-rivals in Melbourne, the club is out for redemption in their last year in exile, before their move back home to their new state-of-the-art stadium. Will they return home as runners-up once again, or return as heroes?
Sky Blue: Inside Sydney FC is told through a cast of eclectic characters and those who matter most. From the board members, players, coaches, backroom staff to the fans, this exclusive on and off the pitch access is the first time a documentary series has followed both the men’s and the women’s teams over the course of a tumultuous season.
The four-part series is premiered today giving viewers real-life sporting drama that delivers triumph and disaster, hope and despair, agony, and ecstasy – the perfect binge worthy football documentary ahead of the return of the Isuzu UTE A-League and Liberty A-League seasons.

Sydney FC Chief Executive Officer Adam Santo said: “This is the most transformational year in Sydney FC’s history and nothing was off limits for the cameras.
“From the board room to the change rooms and the kit room, we opened up our club to the eyes of the world and allowed every insight to be gathered.
“The series gives a fantastic look at the rollercoaster of emotions experienced by everyone connected to the club during last season, including players, members and staff.
“It’s a true all or nothing and gets the blood pumping ahead of our much anticipated new A-Leagues season and our move back to the new Allianz Stadium next week.”
Episode 1 of Sky Blue: Inside Sydney FC is produced by Mint Pictures and is streaming now on Paramount + with episodes 2, 3 and 4 set for release over the next three Thursdays.
