There's no better soccer ambassador than Abby Wambach.

PEOPLE is exclusively premiering the trailer for Wambach's new ESPN+ show Abby's Place, in which she will show audiences why soccer is so internationally beloved by visiting different venues with historical significance to the sport and sharing discussions with her celebrity friends.

"Soccer isn't just my favorite game, it's the world's favorite game," the retired athlete, 41, says, later adding, "Soccer isn't just loved. Soccer is the great global unifier because soccer is love."

The series' tagline also pokes fun at football as it's widely known around the world: "Abby Wambach is on a mission to help America put the 'foot' back in football."

Joining Wambach, 41, in the show are fellow soccer icons including Landon Donovan, Los Angeles Galaxy star Javier "Chicharito" Hernández, Brandi Chastain, Julie Foudy, Briana Scurry and Orlando Pride star Ashlyn Harris.
