Co-producer José María Yazpik said that previously shot footage comprises the film's visual content, but there is footage that has never been seen before.
Ilusión Nacional was released in Mexico on June 4, 2014, and was timed to coincide with the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Eric Ortiz Garcia of Twitch Film called it "little more than a recap of Mexico's history in the World Cup" and Rubio's worst documentary to date.
