‘Kiss the badge, screw the oligarchs, this heist’s heading for extra time’.

 

A six-part returning rollercoaster ride, ‘football-heist’ comedy-drama series.

 

SYNOPSIS

A ‘team’ of down on their luck, lower league, ex-footballers concoct an outlandish sting and spectacular heist to relieve a corrupt Saudi club owner of millions of dollars of dirty laundered cash – and redistribute the money to its rightful owners: the kids and grassroots local teams that keep the true spirit of football alive.

Set against the backdrop of a crunch World Cup game featuring England’s Lionesses, BALLS is football’s version of The Italian Job and Oceans 11, with a whisper of Robin Hood and Ted Lasso.
