FIFA is getting into the streaming service business with a soccer version of Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime.
The service is free.
The first slate of FIFA+ Originals will feature Ronaldinho, Dani Alves, Ronaldo Nazário, Romelu Lukaku, Lucy Bronze and Carli Lloyd, among others.

It will accelerate the democratisation of football and we are delighted to share it with fans.”
