Home Ground

Home Ground

Home Ground follows Helena Mikkelsen’s journey to the top as Europe’s first female football manager – and her struggles as a single mum.

In season two, her team loses their sponsor. With an inexperienced squad, Helena faces a turbulent season where fighting for her club’s soul is as important as on-field success.

The series is about passion, identity and loyalty. It is about relocating to a small community and trying to gain the respect of others without losing yourself.
