David Beckham is to go around the world for a new TV documentary playing seven football games in seven continents – including the first ever game in Antarctica.
The new BBC film 'Beckham: For the love of the game' will start in humble communities playing with youngsters.
It will end where it all began for the former England captain at Old Trafford, where he plays his final game with a host of internationally renowned footballing legends who he played for and against in his illustrious career.
According to the BBC, he will journey into the heart of countries travelling through difficult and sometimes dangerous terrains to get to the pitches.
Locations include the villages of Papua New Guinea, the foothills of Nepal, the streets of Buenos Aires, the desert plains of Djibouti and the elevated pitches of Miami.
He will meet the locals and play a seven a-side or eleven a-side game with two teams drawn from the local community.
Matches will be played in locations from the vast, unexplored jungle of Papua New Guinea to the frozen lands of Antarctica; the first time a match has been played there.
Beckham said: "I remember sitting on a plane and discussing this idea with friends and never thinking it would become a reality. I'm genuinely excited now we can realise this ambitious idea.
"Whether as a player or out in the field for UNICEF and other charitable partners, I have seen the transformational effect that sport and in particular football has on people's lives.
"This epic journey will allow me to show the positive side of the game I love and shine a light on the passion and selflessness of people that play this sport as a force for good."
The 90 minute film is likely to be shown on BBC1 next year, following on from his doc Into The Unknown in 2014 where he travelled across Brazil on a motorbike.
Charlotte Moore, Controller of BBC One, said: "David Beckham returns to BBC One for a special film following his long held personal ambition to play seven games of football in every continent around the world from Nepal, Papua New Guinea, Chile to Antarctica.
"David has set himself the challenge to highlight how the beautiful game can be a transformational force for good in the way it change lives and brings communities together amongst some of the most isolated and vulnerable people in the world."
