The Expos were the first Major League Baseball franchise located outside the United States, playing in Montreal from 1969 until 2004 when the team moved to Washington and was renamed the Washington Nationals.

The departure left Canadian baseball fans up in arms and according to Netflix, the upcoming documentary will “explore the setbacks that led to the departure of Quebec’s beloved Expos from Montreal, and how it continues to spark debate 20 years later.”

The Montreal Expos Netflix film’s Executive Producers are Marie-Christine Pouliot and Richard Speer and is set to be directed by Jean-François Poisson.

“It is with great pride and enthusiasm that Attraction announces the first project to result from our partnership with Netflix,” said Executive Producer and President of Attraction, Richard Speers.

“The Expos were the first MLB team outside of the US, and despite their departure from Montreal, they continue to have passionate fans to this day. This film will tell the story of the team through the eyes of those who lived it.”

Netflix hasn’t shared when the film will take to its platform, but sports lovers or anyone who’s interested in learning more about Canada’s sports history will want to check it out.
