How to watch Manchester United’s new behind-the-scenes documentary free

Amazon is set to launch a new documentary charting Manchester United’s greatest ever season when they took home the treble in 1999.

With the club reeling from Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal and their first Premier League title, the departure of Eric Cantona and David Beckham’s new status as public enemy number one after his 1998 World Cup red card against Argentina, United went on to secure a unique achievement with three trophies in ten days.

The new documentary, named 99, is out on 17 May but fans can sign up for a free Amazon Prime trial now and will be able to watch the documentary when it premieres. The free trial last for 30 days and allows you to watch the documentary as soon as it airs.

The documentary is a behind-the-scenes look at the pressure cooker at Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United as they chase Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League glory, culminating in the famous final against German giants Bayern Munich.

Featuring revealing interviews with David Beckham, Gary and Phil Neville, Andy Cole and Dwight Yorke among others, it showcases Beckham’s battle to win over hostile crowds, internal pressures and fights, and last minute winners.

Amazon says: “25 years later, filmmaker Sampson Collins, with access to the team and new revelations and footage from inside the dressing room explores the excitement, unparalleled determination, and miraculous twists of fate leading up to the remarkable achievement.”
