It’s not long until the film about legendary Ipswich Town and England manager Sir Bobby Robson is screened in selected cinemas – and today the trailer for ‘Bobby Robson: More Than A Manager’ has been released.

Described as an ‘intimate portrait of one of sport’s most inspirational and influential figures’, it stars an A-list cast including Sir Alex Ferguson, Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola, Ronaldo, Paul Gascoigne, Alan Shearer and Gary Lineker and includes never-before-seen archive footage as well as emotional testimony from Lady Elsie Robson.

It also includes recollections of the late, great Sir Bobby himself on a career and life which included winning the FA Cup and UEFA Cup as Ipswich Town manager, guiding England to their greatest World Cup abroad, a Barcelona treble, battles with cancer and returning to his beloved Newcastle.

This film is now available to pre-order from iTunes and Amazon.

Ahead of its release via digital download on June 1 and DVD/Blu-Ray on June 4, the film will receive three special stadium screenings at Wembley Stadium, London (May 23), St James’ Park, Newcastle (May 22) and Portman Road, Ipswich (May 25). It will also be released in select theatres.

Funds raised will support of The Bobby Robson Foundation, which raises money to find more effective ways to detect and treat cancer.
