The Players comes in the wake of UEFA's celebrated study of referees, Man in the Middle, which followed some of Europe's top officials during the first season of the VAR system. The series gave detailed insight into the drama and psychology of refereeing at the highest levels in European football, with all four episodes still available to view on UEFA.tv.
