Los Angeles-based sales company Fabrication Films has completed a raft of sales on David Anspaugh's real-life sports drama The Game Of Their Lives.

Film division president Wendy Reeds reported sales to 21st Century in Australia, Wise Policy in Japan, Aurum in Spain, NoShame Films in Italy, Conquest Films in Brazil, and Hollywood Entertainment in Greece.

Rights also went to Bosphorus in Turkey, Vitra in Poland, Shapira in Israel, and Cathay in Singapore.

Based on the US football team's legendary 1-0 defeat of England during the 1950 World Cup, The Game Of Their Lives stars Wes Bentley, Gerard Butler, Patrick Stewart, and John Rhys-Davies.

IFC Films released the $20m Bristol Bay Productions title in April in North America. Howard Baldwin, Karen Baldwin, Peter Newman, and Ginger T Perkins served as producers.
