New Delhi: Legendary English football player David Beckham is all-set to play seven matches across seven continents over a period of 13 days for his new TV show titled David Beckham - For the Love of the Game which is scheduled to air on May 28.

The special series will see Beckham travel around the world in a span of just under two weeks and following his return to United Kingdom, the former Manchester United star will take part in his own star-studded UNICEF fund raising match at Old Trafford.

The sporting icon will visit some of the remotest locations of the world to play football, meet some of the less fortunate people and discover their struggles and stories.

From the earthquake hit school in Nepal to tribes in the jungles of Papua New Guinea to women’s soccer team in Miami, Beckham will travel the world to discover how the love for football unites all.
