ONE World Sports will premiere Champions Again: The Story of the 2015 New York Cosmos, a recap of the team’s season that culminated in its second NASL championship in three years. The 30-minute show will air on December 12 at 7 p.m. eastern.

Champions Again will recapture milestones of the Cosmos’ year including the signing of Spanish striker Raúl; the team’s U.S. Open Cup win over NYCFC, its loss to New York Red Bulls; the Cosmos’ visit to Cuba in June; the team’s NASL spring and fall season victories; and most recently, the retirements of Raúl and fellow legend Marcos Senna.

In besting Ottawa Fury FC at Hofstra’s Shuart Stadium on November 15, the Cosmos earned their second NASL Championship in just the three years since the team’s 2013 re-birth.    

Champions Again is the second production of the network’s recently launched ONE World Sports Originals unit. Its debut program, the documentary A Bridge to Cuba, commemorates the Cosmos’ historic June 2015 trip to Havana to play a friendly match against the Cuba national team. A Bridge To Cuba is available to ONE World Sports TV subscribers and to all fans via the Watch ONE World Sports app.
