The Wild Soccer Bunch

Rerun on KiKa during summer holidays
From Monday, June 31 to Friday, August 4, all 13 episodes of the first season will be broadcasted on KiKA. The broadcasting starts with the first episode on Monday at 11:00 a.m.. From Tuesday to Friday three episodes are aired each day – beginning at 12:05p.m..

The production of the story and the cool “look” of the program is of exceptional high quality, unusual and wild. The result is a soccer-saga that engrosses and thrills viewers, with characters who are always on the go and, in spite of all their faults, succeed in rising above themselves. Fiction for strong kids full of passion and emotion.
(Barbara Biermann, ZDF, Head of the Editorial Department, Children and Youth Section)
