David Beckham: For the Love of the Game

Synopsis: The Former England sets himself the goal of playing a football match on all seven continents of the earth in under ten days, ending with an all star match at Old Trafford all in the aid of his UNICEF 7 fund. Join David and the team as they travel to play the beautiful game in some of the most remote places on the planet, from the lush jungles of Papua New Guinea to a refugee camp in Djibouti in Africa, to a World Heritage Site in Nepal. He meets a team from the Boca Juniors in Buenos Aires, then travels down to one of the most inhospitable areas of the world; Antarctica, to play the most challenging game of all. They fly up to the glittering sky line of Miami, and finally across to Old Trafford to play the ultimate game where it all began for Beckham at Old Trafford.



Hey, how are you?

It's good to get

it started, actually.

The trip was kind of put together

pretty quickly.

Seven continents

in a really short space of time

is an ambitious one

but I want to see places

where we're raising the money for

and that need a light

shining on them.

It's beautiful.

I mean, the landscape is incredible.

It's incredible.

I'm looking forward

to my first match tomorrow morning,

but first, I'm visiting

a farming village in the highlands.

It's amazing to think

that Papua New Guinea

is such rich, fertile farmland.

They can grow almost anything here,

and yet they have a problem

with child malnutrition.


- Welcome to Kumgna village...

- Thank you.

- ..Mr David Beckham.

- Thank you.

Gideon will be playing

in tomorrow's game

but first,

he shows me around the village.

Nearly half of the children

under five in Papua New Guinea

aren't getting

the nutritious food they need

to grow up healthy and strong.

So, tell me, why is there

so much malnutrition?

Because the crops...

You see, the crops are great.

The vegetables that you have...


- It's used for income?

- Yes.

No, of course.

- Kids are playing football.

- They are. In the rain.

I'd like to go and see.

- You want to see them?

- Yeah.

As a parent, it's very sad to see

what goes on

in communities like this one.

Young children that are

not being given the chance

to live healthy, normal lives.

Luckily, UNICEF

and other charities here

are helping educate local parents

about the benefits of good nutrition.



The challenge about this is,

I have to be fit for

the 14th of November so...

I'm not worried about injuries

but there's a few people on the trip

that are worried about me

getting injured, I think.
