The German Men’s National Team are set to join the raft of football-based docuseries currently available to stream, following the report that they will be the subject of Amazon’s latest ‘All Or Nothing’ series, with the four-time winners set to have cameras following all their BTS movements in Qatar this winter.
Of course, both the German Football Association (DFB) and Amazon will be hoping for a better showing than in the last World Cup in 2018 when the then defending champions were knocked out in the group stages.
Germany will contest Group E alongside Japan, Costa Rica and 2010 world champions Spain. Flick’s men will kick off their World Cup campaign on November 23 against Japan at the Khalifa International Stadium.
Prime Video’s critically-acclaimed series following the Gunners, showing behind-the-scenes footage of what was a memorable 2021/22 season, went down well with fans and players.
The ‘Germany: All or Nothing’ series will follow the side’s preparations for the 2022 Qatar World Cup. If Germany should win the tournament this Winter, cameras will document the side’s return to the top of the world as they bid for a fifth World Cup.

Former Bayern Munich manager and Germany coach Hansi Flick said after the announcement: ‘The Amazon team supports us intensively and offers many exclusive insights into our processes.
‘The documentary follows our goal back to the top of the world and shows how hard we work to achieve it. Our biggest challenge is still to come with the World Cup. It will be challenging, emotional and hopefully successful in the end. We go all in and want to go with it make the documentary possible for the fans.’
What is All or Nothing: Germany?
Germany have a pretty decent track record in the World Cup, and they’ll be hoping that their next campaign, which comes later this year in Qatar, will fair well as it’s set to be the focus of a new documentary from Amazon.
Reports suggest that the series will also initially cover the German’s participation at Euro 2020, where they eventually lost in the Round of 16 to host nation England. The idea is that the documentary will show the nation rising to prominence once more.
Six episodes will take viewers through the German national team’s preparations for the 2022 Qatar World Cup and the tournament itself. It will start after the Germans were knocked out of the 2018 World Cup in the group stages, falling at the first hurdle of their world title defence.
The much-awaited series will also show what goes on in front of and behind the scenes at the tournament. Amazon Studios is producing in association with UFA Documentary, with Christian Twente the director and Marc Lepetit the producer. Prime Video has already run All or Nothing documentaries on leading German top-flight clubs Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.
All or Nothing: Germany release date
Die Mannschaft will become the third national side to be followed by the cameras at a major tournament, after Brazil’s successful 2019 and Argentina’s 2021 Copa America campaign was made into a documentary.
The most recent iteration gave viewers a glimpse into the inner workings of Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal during the 2021-22 season – a series which drew praise from viewers and players alike.
The six-episode series will begin after the four-time champions were knocked out in the group stages of the last tournament and hopefully for German fans, one that will end with the team lifting the 2022 edition. ‘All or Nothing: Germany’ will release in Spring 2023, by which time we’ll all know how it ultimately ends.
Where to watch All or Nothing: Germany
The “All or Nothing: Germany” series will be available to watch exclusively on Amazon Prime Video. New members can sign up for a free 30-day trial on the website.
An Amazon Prime subscription is £7.99 in the UK or $12.99 per month in the U.S.
Germany: All or Nothing trailer
There is no official teaser or trailer out for All or Nothing: Germany. This is mainly due to the fact that the docuseries will focus largely on the upcoming World Cup journey of the German national team which will start from November 20, 2022. Fans can expect a trailer to be released post the World Cup coming to an end by the new year.
This time around, the Germany side is blessed with much more talent than in previous tournaments, with Jamal Musiala leading a new generation of DFB talents who will be gunning for glory in Qatar in a few months. Prime Video has already done its fair share of series before on German clubs, with this being the first time the German national team will be under the Amazon Prime spotlight this winter.
