Broadcast giant Amazon partners with Rangers to show Barca Bears documentary

50 years on from Rangers’ European Cup Winners’ Cup victory in Barcelona, a new documentary covering the Barca Bears has been released on Amazon Prime in the UK and Ireland today.

The documentary, produced by The City Talking, features interviews with some of the key figures involved to the run to Barcelona as well as never-before-seen footage from the time.

After it was released on DVD earlier this year, it has now been picked up by Amazon, with Rangers fans excited to see the film.

“We are really happy to continue our relationship with Prime Video and to see the film being made available to Prime members. This is a special story and we want it to be seen by as many people as possible,” Lee Hicken, Executive Producer of the film and Founder of The City Talking said.

‘’The remarkable achievements of the ‘Barca Bears’ in 1972 will forever be remembered as a defining moment in the club’s rich 150-year history,” Rangers commercial director James Bisgrove added.

‘’This May marked the 50th anniversary of their famous victory and it felt fitting for us to reach the 2022 UEFA Europa League Final, with Rangers supporters following the club in record numbers across Europe on this brilliant journey back to Spain.’’

‘’We’re delighted to work with Prime Video to make the iconic Rangers72 movie available to supporters and the wider football community.’’

Rangers 72 is the latest The City Talking production to launch on Prime Video, following ‘Take Us Home: Leeds United’ and ‘As Good As It Gets?’ and the club hopes it will be made available to international viewers soon.
