Sports fans should practice doing without these days. Most of us are at home and wondering what to look for in the evening. But there is no live sport to watch. Sports documentaries offer a replacement. We present a selection.

Stuttgart – The average sports fan is in tow. The world is in turmoil, the coronavirus pandemic is rampant, sport is on hold. In Baden-Württemberg, Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann has even threatened a coup if the population does not immediately follow government instructions. So it is better to stay home. But what to do when there is no live sport? Watch documentaries! We’ve put together a selection of formats for you, claiming they’re complete and in no way, and we’ve researched how you can call them and how much they can cost.

Team

To many of us it looks like yesterday: the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Black, red and gold were everywhere and on the evening of July 13, 2014, all of Germany seemed to be cheering on television. Unforgettable final with the shock of Mineirão, when the Germans defeated the hosts 7-1. For those who want to remember, “Team” is the right thing to do without football.

The movie is included with Amazon Prime Video. The subscription can be tested free of charge for 30 days, then either € 7.99 per month or € 69 as an annual subscription. Students receive a 50 percent discount.

The movie can also be rented for € 2.49 (SD) or € 3.49 (HD) from Amazon Prime Video or YouTube, among others.



Take the ball consequently the ball

For all those who love FC Barcelona and Pep Guardiola. Or just great football. The Blaugranas obviously played him under Guardiola. The Catalans won 14 titles between 2008 and 2012. Football journalist Graham Hunter gave the template with his book – director Duncan McMath did a great job.

The movie is included with Amazon Prime Video. The subscription can be tested free of charge for 30 days, then either € 7.99 per month or € 69 as an annual subscription. Students receive a 50 percent discount. The movie can also be rented for € 2.99 (SD) or € 3.99 (HD) from Amazon Prime Video or YouTube, among others.

Kroos

Most recently after his smart goal from the free kick against Sweden, Toni Kroos proved that he is one of the best players in the world. No German footballer has won as many titles as the reserved Greifswalder. However, many are still unsure whether Kroos is a genius or a slow and immobile average footballer. The documentary gives a great overview of the life of the 30-year-old Madrid woman.

The movie is included with Amazon Prime Video. The subscription can be tested free of charge for 30 days, then either € 7.99 per month or € 69 as an annual subscription. Students receive a 50 percent discount.

The movie can also be rented for € 2.99 (SD) or € 3.99 (HD) from Amazon Prime Video or YouTube, among others.

Brenda Borussia Dortmund

The documentary accompanies the stars about Marco Reus and Jadon Sancho during the 2018/2019 season and gives exclusive insights into the world of professional football. Be it the speeches of coach Lucien Favre or the rehabilitation of Marco Reus – a behind-the-scenes look is more than interesting, even for football fans who do not adhere to Borussia.

Being Mario Götze

Appropriately, football journalist Aljoscha Pause accompanied World Cup hero Mario Götze. In the documentary, the director shows the way from 2014, when Götze scored the decisive goal in the World Cup final, to become an injured and out-of-form substitute. The film not only illuminates the professional daily life of the extraordinary talent, but also his private life. Some of the companions of the BVB strike say their word.

Being Mario Götze can be seen as a four-part series on DAZN. Subscribers currently pay 11.99 euros per month to use the broadcast provider. Membership can be canceled every month. An annual subscription costs € 119.99. There is also a free month for new customers.

24/7 FC

With “24/7 FC”, DAZN accompanies 1. FC Cologne throughout the season – it is the most complex moving image project in FC history. Even during the season, not only FC fans are given an in-depth insight into daily life in the Bundesliga.

The eight-part documentary will be gradually published on the platform. Subscribers currently pay 11.99 euros per month to use the broadcast provider. Membership can be canceled every month. An annual subscription costs € 119.99. There is also a free month for new customers.

Arbitri Deniz Aytekin

The ARD sports show shows the different aspects of referee Deniz Aytekin. “Cards, whistles, thick bass” provides in-depth knowledge of the Aytekin person who works off-field as a successful entrepreneur and DJ hobby. Furthermore, the documentation makes the judge’s work more transparent, shows how difficult it is for judges, and also provides in-depth knowledge of how the Assistant Video Judge (VAR) works.

Available free of charge at the first media library.

One year under ultras

Anyone who is also interested in what is happening outside the green lawn, in the turns of the nation, is recommended to read this ARD documentary. All the more interesting because of the current situation, renewed tense between the organized fan scene and the DFB. The ultra scene at VfB Stuttgart also has its say in the 45-minute film.

It can be viewed for free on the Sportschau YouTube channel.

Serial all or nothing

The All or Nothing series, which can be seen exclusively on Amazon Prime Video, has been around since 2016. Every year, a club team is watched throughout the season.

Travel to survive

The Netflix series follows the pilots and teams of the second tier of the 2018 Formula 1 season in their battle for the informal title of “Best of the Rest”. Refreshing and even more interesting because otherwise we talk almost exclusively about the top 10 executives. Now there is a brand new second season based on last year’s season.

The series is available exclusively on Netflix. The broadcast service is free for the first month, after which you can choose between three subscription models: Basic (€ 7.99), Standard (€ 11.99) and Premium (€ 15.99).

Perfect casting

Dirk Nowitzki is not only the most famous German basketball player, but also the most successful. The documentary chronicles Würzburger’s career – from second division basketball player to NBA star.

The movie is available on Netflix. The broadcast service is free for the first month, after which you can choose between three subscription models: Basic (€ 7.99), Standard (€ 11.99) and Premium (€ 15.99).

The documentation can also be rented from Amazon Prime Video or YouTube for € 2.99 (SD) or € 3.99 (HD).

stripes

For all the ski fans who are already mourning the end of winter, it is “Streif – One Hell of a Ride”. It tells the crazy Hahnenkamm event, where athletes can win everything but can also lose everything. The documentary accompanies five athletes, including world star Aksel Lund Svindal, during their year-long preparation for the most important skiing event. The film’s two narrators, Didier Cuche and Daron Rahlves, once successful skiers themselves, use extensive archival material to look back to the 1950s, when Tony Sailer and the “Kitzbüheler Wunderteam” shaped racing.

The film can be viewed for free on Red Bull TV and with a Netflix subscription. The broadcast service is free for the first month, after which you can choose between three subscription models: Basic (€ 7.99), Standard (€ 11.99) and Premium (€ 15.99).

The killer in Aaron Hernandez

Netflix deals with the late New England Patriots NFL professional in the three-part documentary series. How did the footballer become a cold-blooded killer? Friends, involved in the process at the time, journalists and former teammates have their say. Background: Aaron Hernandez was arrested in 2013 for murder: he reportedly killed his future brother-in-law with several shots. To this day no one knows the reason for this.

The movie is available on Netflix. The broadcast service is free for the first month, after which you can choose between three subscription models: Basic (€ 7.99), Standard (€ 11.99) and Premium (€ 15.99).

Free solo

The film won the Oscar for Best Documentary in 2019. There is nothing more to say about the alluring film about free climber Alex Honnold. Honnold conquers the granite rock up to 1000 meters high El Capitan in Yosemite National Park in the US without rope or other technical aids. The directors show impressively the thin line that such extreme athletes walk. It does not go unnoticed that free climbers often die from falls.

The movie is available on the new Disney + streaming platform. The service will also be available in Germany from March 24. The contribution is € 6.99 per month. If you unsubscribe for one year, you pay € 69.99. Whoever decides to subscribe until March 23 pays € 59.99 for one year.
