Beckham himself shared these thoughts about the series:
“It is fantastic to be making Save Our Squad with Twenty Twenty and to shine a light on the kind of grassroots football that I experienced growing up and which gave me so much at the start of my life in the game. I was so fortunate to have a long and successful playing career and now to have the opportunity to give back to these communities as a mentor is incredible. Developing and nurturing young talent is so important in the game and it is great to be working with Disney+ on this project.”
Doyle is working closely with Beckham and the rest of the team to produce a “transformative journey of a lifetime” with coaches, players, and the community.
