Channel: ESPN (DStv 218)
TX Time: 21h30
Genre: Sport, Documentary Series


A three-part documentary series chronicling the inception, highs and lows of Florentino Perez's "Galactico" revolution as he led the club Real Madrid to the top of world soccer.

Galacticos documents Pérez's first term as president of Real Madrid and the "Galactico" revolution he oversaw to make the team the most glamorous and successful football club the world has ever seen.

The series traces Real Madrid's time under Perez, from his Presidential win and controversial transfer of Luis Figo from bitter rivals Barcelona in July 2000, to the resignation of his first term as Real Madrid President in February 2006 following the fallout from his "Galáctico" vision.

Galacticos follows the transfers of Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo and David Beckham, who joined the club between 2001 to 2003 who, alongside Figo, formed the "Galactico" (Spanish for "galactics", referring to superstars) generation.

The series also explores Perez's vision to modernise Real Madrid in a new world of sponsorship, image rights and the internet to become a global sporting superpower in the 2000s.

In Perez's first three years at the club, Real Madrid won two La Liga titles, the UEFA Champions League in 2002, two Spanish Super Cups, the European Super Cup and the Intercontinental Cup.

Yet, as Perez's reign progressed, we hear from key players, board members and journalists about the friction between the old and new Real Madrid.

With huge egos in both the dressing room and board rooms, and with the importance of marketing over football, the breaking-up of Real's winning formula led to the demise of the 'Galactico' revolution, ending in Perez resigning from his role at the club in 2006.

Galacticos includes fascinating insights from a stellar interview cast of Real Madrid legends, including Iker Casillas, Roberto Carlos, Fernando Hierro, Claude Makélélé, Fernando Morientes, Steve McManaman and Manager Vicente del Bosque, alongside individuals closest to Perez.
