NBC Sports: EPL Manchester United

Lively, info-animation schools you on all the soccer clubs

Editor's Pick

Who the heck are the magpies? And what are the referees wearing? The Brooklyn Brothers whets your soccer appetite with a series of animated spots for NBC Sports, promoting the network's coverage of the Premier League. Created with Transistor Studios, the "Guide to the Premier League" introduces the various teams via fun info-graphic inspired visuals. Together, they make the perfect primer for football newbies, explaining the ins outs of the game and providing colorful--and sometimes controversial -- bits of team history.

Did you know, for example, that stadiums are more than just forums for sport and have brought glory to small towns (as in the case of Sunderland)? Or, when was the last time Newcastle won the League (1927)? Some of the clubs also have very famous following--like wanna know who Will Ferrell roots for?

The stories will be on the NBC Sports Team Guide website and on television. See a handful of them, including a montage, on the right.
