In the summer of 2016 filmmaker John Gubba went to China to explore the China Football Revolution.
Here is the short film he filmed, produced, narrated and edited that previews the documentary series he wants to complete for worldwide distribution. The anticipation is that interest in football is destined to sky rocket over the next decade. The hope is that China will stage the 2030 FIFA World Cup and this documentary series will chart that progress from this initial shoot.
“What I saw first hand convinced me beyond any doubt that my decision to invest my own money in filming a documentary about the China Football Revolution is a gamble worth taking. This is not a story that is going to happen overnight. But over the next decade or so, the football landscape is going to change beyond all recognition as far as China is concerned.” – John Gubba
