The Wild Soccer Bunch

The Legend Lives!

OT: Die wilden Kerle – Die Legende lebt! | Feature Film | 2016

To this very day kids believe stories of the Wild Soccer Bunch are the best in the whole world.

That’s why Leo, Elias, Finn, Joshua, Oskar and Matze, 8- to 12-years old, replay their heroes’ legendary games every spare minute. One day a darkly dressed young man hands them a mysterious map which leads the boys into unknown territory. Here they realise they´re in the middle of the Wild Bunch country and that they have been chosen to be the successors of the real now grown-up Wild Soccer Bunch.

Now Leo and co. have to start training, activate coach Willi, the best coach of them all, get the Devil’s Gulch pitch ready and deal with the fact that they’re joined by a seventh “man” Müller, which happens to be a girl…

Are they wild enough to succeed?
