We wanted to offer 15 amateur players over 25 from all over Canada the opportunity to make their dream come true: to play against a team of Canadian soccer legends. Our TV show, One Last Shot was a multimedia event that showcased the determination of ordinary individuals in an extraordinary situation. The show works on a strong insight: that everyone harbours a belief they could have been the best, if only they’d been given the chance. The most valuable player in the eventual game received a $10K prize.
The One Last Shot format consists of 13 30 minute TV episodes, which collectively tell the story of the idea’s inception, the team’s formation and training, and the final event. The complete season will take the viewer on an epic journey that is forever defined by a single question: can a team of could-have-beens turn themselves into heros, just for one day?
