The film will be distributed by Vox Cinemas before being available on MBC's Shahid.
Saudi film Champions, a remake of the Spanish hit Campeones, is set to be released in cinemas across the GCC on March 10.
The film has been adapted for the Arab market by Saudi scriptwriters Maram Taibah and Wael Al Saeed, and is directed by Manuel Calvo, who was part of the directorial team on the Oscar-nominated film Pain and Glory. It is produced by Oscar-winning producer Andres Vicente Gomez.
The original film won the best picture at the Spanish Film Academy Goya Awards 2018.
The film tells the story of Khaled, the assistant coach of a top Saudi football team who, after losing his temper, ends up in disciplinary court. After losing his prestigious job, he is forced to carry out an unexpected community service: coaching a non-professional team of players with intellectual disabilities.
Champions stars Yassir Al Saggaf, host of MBC talent show The Voice, alongside Fatima Al Banawi of Barakah Meets Barakah, as well as a cast of young people with intellectual disabilities, many of whom were recruited from Jeddah’s Help Centre. A crew of 90 professionals from Saudi Arabia and Spain filmed in various locations across Jeddah.
