The Greatest Sports Documentaries Ever - A List

Recommended Posts

Some other from BT Sport or Sky Sports that I don't think have been mentioned:

  • 89 - Story of Arsenal's 1988/89 season, culminating in game at Anfield.
  • Everton, Howard's Way - Covering the period when they were at their peak in mid-eighties.
  • Team of the Eighties - Malcolm Allison and Terry Venables and their transformation of Crystal Palace in the late seventies. 
  • Brothers in Football - One of the most remarkable tales, focusing on an amateur English side and one of the biggest teams in South America. Really incredible story plays out before your eyes.

The Three Kings is an excellent watch, part football and part social history. Bill Shankly, what a man.

Everything Jonny Owen does in football documentaries is absolutely must watch material, his biopic of Brian Clough's European Cup triumph at Nottingham Forest 'I Believe in Miracles' is one of the best of its type I have ever seen. 

Did you know he is the partner of Line of Duty actress Vicky 'Kate Fleming' McLure?  Well you do now....

Where would one watch the 30 for 30s? 

I had to torrent them to watch, although some are available on YouTube.

The most recent Last Chance U (the basketball one) was very, very good. The American Football ones are excellent as well, but the basketball one is the superior of the four, IMO.

Legendary Nights: Gatti v Ward is my favourite ever sports documentary. A fantastic piece on the greatest boxing trilogy in history. Jim Lampley is the boxing commentary GOAT.

The Two Escobar's from BT Sport is really good.

My personal favourite is The Battered b*****ds Of Baseball. Kurt Russell's dad takes over a second tier team in Portland and has open trials for the team , the characters that turn up are great.
