Why is Goal! The Dream Begins rated PG-13? Goal! The Dream Begins is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for some sexual content, language and a brief drug reference.

In this movie about pursuing one’s dreams, a desire for a better life and the opportunity to play soccer/football motivate some characters to lie. Alcohol consumption is seen in sports bars, pubs and at private parties, with several characters drinking to excess. Medicinal drug use is shown, and illegal drug use is mentioned. Sexual relationships are implied (but not depicted), especially with one character that awakes with a hangover and finds himself in bed with two women. Scantily clad females are shown, and a group of them try to undress a young man. Language concerns consist of mild and moderate profanities as well as some sexual slang terms. Sport violence (like tackling, pushing and falling) and injuries (non-graphic) are shown.
