Feyenoord is of course one of the most successful clubs in Dutch football, winning 15 Eredivisie titles and 13 KNVB Cups as well as one European Cup and two UEFA Cups internationally.
Filmed over the 2020/21 season, this Disney Plus Star Original series captures the club at a unique moment in its 113-year history, following managers, players and supporters who all struggled with the pandemic while giving their utmost to ensure a brighter future for the Rotterdam club.
Here’s everything you need to know about That One Word: Feyenoord, which will bring fans closer to the club than ever before.

That One Word: Feyenoord plot
Much like other football documentaries such as Sunderland ‘Til I Die, That One Word: Feyenoord follows the trials and tribulations of the titular team over a single football season.
However, this was not just any football season, but 2020/21 – when the COVID-19 pandemic loomed large over the entire year and spectators were limited.
Opening its doors to the public for the the first time in its 113 year history, this documentary gives unprecedented access to not only the players but also the coach, managers and supporters who all had to learn how to operate differently during the crisis.
Featuring unique footage captured in the locker rooms and boardrooms as well as the pitch, this historic behind-the-scenes series will chart a football season unlike any other – and the many people on and off the pitch who strived for a brighter future for the club.
That One Word: Feyenoord trailer
There is a trailer, but at the moment is just in Dutch. Auto-translate English captions are available, but at the very least the trailer gives a good idea of the hardships encountered both on and off the pitch that this documentary covers.
That One Word: Feyenoord will be released on Disney Plus in 2021. You can sign up to Disney Plus for £7.99 a month or with the annual plan for £79.90. Looking for something else to watch? Check out our TV Guide to see what’s on tonight or visit our Sci-fi hub for more news and features.
