Bobby Robson

Story by Jack Foley

AHEAD of the release of Bobby Robson: More Than A Manager – the new film about the life and career of revered football manager Sir Bobby Robson – the film will have three exclusive preview screenings at Wembley Stadium (London, May 23), St James Park (Newcastle, May 22) and Portman Road (Ipswich, May 25)!

Taking place one week before the official release in select theatres from June 1, an audience will have the chance to see a special pitch-side screening at Wembley stadium on May 23 in honour of the footballing legend and in support of The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, launched in 2008, which raises money to find more effective ways to detect and treat cancer.

The event will feature an exclusive Q&A with ex-England footballer Terry Butcher, hosted by Henry Winter, Chief Football writer at The Times and will be attended by Sir Bobby’s widow, Lady Elsie Robson.

Directed by Gabriel Clarke and Torquil Jones and starring an A-list cast (Ferguson, Mourinho, Guardiola, Ronaldo, Gascoigne, Shearer, Lineker, Butcher) never-before-seen archive footage and emotional testimony from Lady Elsie Robson, this is an intimate portrait of one of sport’s most inspirational and influential figures.

Covering a career that saw some of the greatest moments in footballing history; the hand of God, Gazza’s tears, England’s greatest World Cup abroad, titles in Europe’s top leagues, European triumph with Ipswich Town and a Barcelona treble, this heartfelt and personal film is led by the intimate recollections of Sir Bobby Robson himself.

During an extraordinary career, in which Robson overcame the most extreme challenges, including battles with cancer, his journey came full circle when he returned to save his beloved Newcastle.
