Following their accomplishments as part of the national team and as part of some of the biggest club teams in the world, the four Spanish football players, Xavi Hernández, David Villa, Javi Martínez and Juan Mata now face a new phase in their careers as they play on teams outside of Spain.

The players, along with their families, will navigate living abroad, playing football on an international team and discovering what they miss the most about Spain now that they are far from home.

Living Abroad will explore the people behind the personas admired by millions, looking at who these football icons are when they take off their team shirts; what they like to do off the pitch, who they are closest to, how they relax and how they spend time with their families.

You will witness the most private and personal sides of these four unique footballers, looking at their lives in the UK as well as in Japan, Qatar and Germany.
