Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In Gets A UK Cinema/Prime Video Release Date

This May will be ‘Fergie Time’ when Universal Pictures and Amazon prime are set to release the documentary, Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In.

The film will examine one of British and Scottish Football’s greatest and most Successful managers, Sir Alex Ferguson. Recovering from a life-threatening brain haemorrhage and acutely aware that his memory might desert him. The greatest football manager of all time begins to recount the most important stories of his life, both in and out of football.

Directed by Sir Alex’s son Jason. Stories of growing-up and family, alongside sporting triumph and failure, the film includes deeply moving insights from his wife and sons, as well as former players, along the way.

The film features candid interviews with Sir Alex himself, his wife Cathy, his three sons, as well as former colleagues and elite players including Eric Cantona, Ryan Giggs, Gordon Strachan and Archie Knox.

This is a film about the bond between a man and his family, an exploration of leadership and mental toughness and a celebration of one of football’s greatest careers.

Featuring exclusive and previously unseen archive footage as well as profoundly moving testimonies from his wife and three sons, comes a revealing and deeply personal documentary about the life of Sir Alex Ferguson, from his working-class roots in Glasgow to his career as one of the greatest football managers of all time.

Sir Alex recalls his career vividly – recounting the stories behind his most influential defeats, trophies and players. From his own successful playing career and prolific goal-scoring at Scottish clubs, including Rangers, to his move into management and leading Aberdeen to the European Cup Winners’ Cup and then finally his move south to Old Trafford. After a testing few years at United, he turned the club’s fortunes around and led them to over two decades of consistent success.

Speaking about the documentary Sir Alex Ferguson says, “Losing my memory was my biggest fear when I suffered a brain haemorrhage in 2018. In the making of this film I was able to revisit the most important moments of my life, good and bad. Having my son Jason direct this film has ensured an honest and intimate account.

Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In is coming to cinemas from 27th May and will be available on Amazon Prime Video in the UK and Ireland from 29th May.
