Once In A Lifetime

ABC2  |  October 20, 2010

Once in a Lifetime is the extraordinary story of the New York Cosmos and the rise and fall of America's most famous football (soccer) club. The Cosmos began as a rag-tag team started on a whim by one of the most powerful men in entertainment - Steve Ross, founder of Warner Communications. Ross had never even seen a soccer game before he helped finance a team that in five years had convinced the greatest player in the history of the sport to leave his beloved Brazil for the nascent Cosmos and become a soccer missionary in the USA.
