The latest chapter of Lionel Messi‘s illustrious career involving David Beckham‘s Inter Miami CF, and Major League Soccer, will be the subject of a brand new Apple TV+ documentary: Messi Meets America (and it now has a teaser trailer).

The outline for this six-part affair following the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner, which Apple has noted is the “first and only” account of his aforementioned latest chapter, is as follows:

After over twenty unforgettable and record-breaking years of excellence between Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain, and winning the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 with the Argentina national football team, Leo Messi recently made a landmark decision that forever changed the face of soccer in North America by joining Major League Soccer and Inter Miami CF.

Now, with unprecedented access to Messi and his new Inter Miami CF family, this series takes viewers behind the scenes as the greatest player to ever step on the pitch attempts to lead his new team to a Leagues Cup title and beyond.

From selling out record crowds across America at breakneck speed, to his incredible last-minute game-winning goal in his very first match, to moments with Messi and his Inter Miami CF teammates, the series chronicles Leo’s immersion in America, the remarkable journey and transformation of Inter Miami CF, and most significantly, the impact he is currently having on soccer in North America as “Messi Mania” criss-crosses the continent.

The documentary series has been executive produced by the Emmy Award-winning Tim Pastore (Free Solo); Emmy and Tony Award winners Patrick Milling Smith and Brian Carmody; another Emmy Award winner in Matt Renner (Free Solo, Limitless with Chris Hemsworth) of SMUGGLER Entertainment, as well as Scott Boggins (The Circus).

Side note: this won’t be the sole Apple TV+ docuseries about football’s reigning GOAT either. We’re also set to receive another four-parter, complete with exclusive behind-the-scenes access during his triumphant 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign. How bloody good.

Messi Meets America is scheduled to hit Apple TV+ on October 11th, 2023 (first three episodes, following episodes every week after) — check out the trailer above.
