YouTube and The F2Freestylers are teaming up for the upcoming original series F2 Finding Football.

Produced by sports content creator Whistle Sports, the series features soccer players Billy Wingrove and Jeremy Lynch (otherwise known as The F2Freestylers, pictured) who bring together the best in soccer talent and celebrity guests while exploring the sport in its different versions. The players also head to unique pitches around the world in Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Iceland, France, Thailand and more.

The F2 kick a ball through Rio de Janeiro’s favelas, mash up trick-shots, tango in Buenos Aires and eat shrimp alive in Thailand. F2 Finding Football is billed as a fusion of culture, community and sport.

“At YouTube, we are continuing to invest in incredible European creators and the stories they want to share with the whole world,” said Luke Hyams, head of YouTube Originals in EMEA, in a statement. “F2 Finding Football is a show that will captivate global audiences as it explores the many ways people are inspired by the beautiful game in some of the most football-obsessed countries in the world.”

The public can watch the first two episodes of the series when it premieres on June 13 for free. The remaining episodes will be available with an upgrade to YouTube Premium.
