Sports fans should exercise without these days. Most of us are at home and thinking about what to watch in the evening. But there is no live sport to watch. Sports documentaries offer an alternative. We offer a selection.

Stuttgart – The average sports fan is in a state of withdrawal. The world is in turmoil, the coronavirus pandemic is spreading, and sports are on hold. In the state of Baden-Württemberg, Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann threatened to impose a curfew if residents did not immediately comply with government guidelines. So it is better to stay at home. But what do you do when there is no live sport? Watch documentaries! Without claiming to be complete and in what order, we’ve put together a bunch of formats for you, and looked at how and how much they are called up.

the team

For many of us, it feels like it was yesterday: the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Black, red, and gold were everywhere, and on the evening of July 13, 2014, the whole of Germany seemed to be rejoicing on TV. They did not forget the final match with the shock of Mineiro, when the Germans defeated the hosts 7-1. For those who want to be remembered, “team” is just the thing in football’s spare time.

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

Take the ball pass the ball

For everyone who loves Barcelona and Pep Guardiola. Or simply great football. The Blaugrana starred, undoubtedly under Guardiola. The Catalans won 14 titles between 2008 and 2012. Football journalist Graham Hunter provided the model with his book – director Duncan McMath did an excellent job.

The movie is included with Amazon Prime Video. The subscription can be tested free for 30 days, then either €7.99 per month or €69 as an annual subscription. Students get 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.

cross

Ultimately after his outstanding free kick goal against Sweden, Toni Kroos proved to be one of the best players in the world. No German player has won as many titles as reserved Greifswalder. However, many are still not sure if Kroos was a genius or a slow and immobile footballer. The documentary offers an insight into the life of the 30-year-old madridista.

The movie is included with Amazon Prime Video. The subscription can be tested free for 30 days, then either €7.99 per month or €69 as an annual subscription. Students get 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.

Inside Borussia Dortmund

The documentary accompanies the stars about Marco Reus and Jadon Sancho during the 2018/19 season and provides exclusive insights into the world of professional football. Whether it’s coach Lucien Favre’s speeches or Marco Reus’ rehabilitation – a look behind the scenes is more than intriguing, even for football fans not committed to Borussia.

The four-part series is available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video. The subscription can be tested free for 30 days, then either €7.99 per month or €69 as an annual subscription. Students get a 50 percent discount.

Being Mario Gotze

Appropriately, football journalist Aljoscha Pause was accompanied by World Cup champion Mario Gotze. In the documentary, the director shows the way from 2014, when Gotze scored the crucial goal in the World Cup final, becoming an injured and unfit substitute. The film highlights not only the daily career of the exceptional talent but also his private life. Some of my BVB kicker buddies have their say.

Being Mario Gotze can be considered as a four-part series on DAZN. Subscribers currently pay €11.99 per month to use the streaming provider. Membership can be canceled monthly. The annual subscription costs €119.99. There is also a free month for new customers.

In addition, a compressed movie copy of 136 minutes can be rented for 4.99 euros from Amazon Prime Video or YouTube, among others.

24/7 FC

With “24/7 FC”, she accompanies DAZN 1. FC Köln all season – it’s the most complex motion picture project in FC history. Even during the season, it’s not just the football club’s fans who get to get an in-depth look at the everyday life of the Bundesliga.

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

Referee Denise Aitken

ARD sports show the different sides of referee Deniz Aitken. Cards, Whistles, and Fat Busses allow deep insights into the person Aytekin, who works off the field as a successful entrepreneur and DJ hobby. In addition, the documentation makes the task of refereeing more transparent, shows how difficult it is for referees, and provides deep insights into how the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) works.

Available for free at First Media Library.

A year under the ultra

Anyone also interested in what’s happening outside the green grass, at the curves of the nation, is recommended to read this ARD documentary. All of this is intriguing due to the current and renewed tense situation between the organized fan scene and DFB. The superlative scene at VfB Stuttgart also has its say in the 45-minute film.

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

All or nothing series

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

campaign to survive

The Netflix series follows the drivers and teams in the second row of the 2018 Formula 1 season as they battle for the unofficial title “Best of the Rest”. Refreshing and more interesting because otherwise the top 10 drivers are talked about almost exclusively. There is now a brand new second season based on last year’s season.

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

Strips

For all the ski lovers who are grieving the end of winter, there is “Streif – One Hell of a Ride”. It shows the crazy Hahnenkamm event, where athletes can win everything, but they can also lose everything. The documentary accompanies five athletes, including world superstar Axel Lund Svendal, as they prepare for a whole year for the most important ski event. The film’s narrator, Didier Koch and Daron Rawls, two successful figure skating racers, used extensive archival material to go back to the 1950s, when Tony Seiler and “Kitzbuehler Vandertem” formed races.

The killer in Aaron Hernandez

Netflix deals with the dead NFL pro from the New England Patriots in the three-part documentary series. How did a football player become a cold-blooded killer? Comrades, participants in the process at the time, journalists and former colleagues had their say. Background: Aaron Hernandez was arrested in 2013 for murder: he was said to have 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 streaming service is free for the first month, after which you can choose from three subscription models: Basic (€7.99), Standard (€11.99) and Premium ($15.99).

free solo

The film won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature of the year 2019. There is nothing else to say about the film that highlights freestyle climber Alex Honnold. Honnold conquers a granite boulder up to 1,000 meters high at El Capitan in Yosemite National Park in the USA without rope or other technical aid. The filmmakers impressively show the fine line these extreme athletes walk. It does not go unnoticed that solo climbers often die from falls.

The movie is available on the new streaming platform Disney+. The service will also be available in Germany from March 24. The contribution is 6.99 euros per month. If you cancel the subscription for one year, you will pay €69.99. Anyone who decides to sign up by March 23rd pays €59.99 for one year.
