Meanwhile Seven has programmed a new documentary about the drawn 2010 AFL Grand Final match between the Collingwood and St Kilda Football Clubs which has been called one of the most dramatic moments in AFL history.

Introduced by McAvaney and airing on Channel 7 and 7mate in AFL Grand Final Week, The Final Draw is an AFL-produced documentary from acclaimed filmmaker Peter Dickson.

Dickson tells the story of how the 2010 AFL Grand Final unfolded and the lasting effects it had on all those involved.

Taking a unique and at times emotional look back at this remarkable day with raw insight from all the main players, Dickson said the process took over eight months.

“For a long while now, I’ve been wanting to tell the story of what is now the last ever drawn Grand Final,” Dickson said.

“I’m very appreciative to the AFL and to Channel 7 for the opportunity to apply my documentary style to this story.

“I’m so grateful to both coaches, Ross [Lyon] and Mick [Malthouse], and all those who took part, for giving their time and being so honest.”

The documentary screens this Sunday night at 10pm in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

There is an encore screening on the evening of September 30, Grand Final eve, in all markets on 7mate.
