About

My Eleven: The Animated Series combines the footballing highs, lows and tough personal choices
as seen in Supa Strikas and Roy of the Rovers, with Haikyu!’s teen high school drama. Most of the
action takes place in the vibrant areas of Soweto and greater Jo’burg, with the occasional foray into other exciting and diverse parts of South Africa.

    With the vibrant and colourful Jo’burg as a backdrop, My Eleven will take viewers on a journey from dusty township football pitches, through Soweto’s colourful and vibrant streets, and into the expensive avenues of Sandton and surrounds.
   We’ll see a broad spectrum of high schools which will highlight the immense class disparity present in South Africa, the joys and quirks of daily life in Soweto, and how football is able to unite individuals and communities from varied backgrounds.
