United's players celebrate with the trophy on the pitch after the 1999 Champions League final win over Bayern Munich

'The Impossible Dream' to premiere on Sunday

A new feature-length film celebrating Manchester United’s iconic 1998/99 Treble-winning season will debut on Sunday 28 April, following the Reds’ Premier League clash with Chelsea.

The Impossible Dream is a look back at the unprecedented campaign, which climaxed with Sir Alex Ferguson’s side claiming the Premier League, the FA Cup and the Champions League – the three most prestigious pieces of silverware available to English clubs.
 
NBC Sports were granted access to our entire archive – comprising 125 hours of historic footage – to produce the film, which features interviews with Ferguson and former legends Ryan Giggs, David Beckham and Peter Schmeichel, among a host of others, including current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The movie opens with scenes from the incredible parade through Manchester which followed the dramatic 2-1 win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League final, when tens of thousands of fans congregated to celebrate.
 
Supporters will now be able to relive the Treble, as we approach its 20th anniversary, by catching The Impossible Dream, which premieres on NBCSN at 14:30 ET in the United States.
 
The work will also be streamable via NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports App, while viewers outside the USA can view the film on MUTV on Monday 29 April at 19:30 BST. 
Beckham, who played for Manchester United for 11 seasons (1992-2003) after progressing to the first team from the club’s Academy, summed up the historic season simply.
“That was the most special time in my career,”
he said.
 
“This has been a very special collaboration with Manchester United to present the story of one of the most historic accomplishments in English football,”
said Pierre Moossa, coordinating producer of NBC Sports’ Premier League coverage.
“This film will provide viewers with an opportunity to appreciate an unprecedented achievement that transcends all sports.”
Sir Alex Ferguson and many of the heroes from the famous season will also take part in a Treble anniversary match against a Bayern Munich select XI at Old Trafford on 26 May 2019, exactly 20 years on from the night the Treble was clinched in Barcelona.
