The atmosphere at a football game is unique, unlike any other sporting code with supporters worldwide singing chants throughout.
But that atmosphere doesn’t need to be isolated to an at-match experience, for those armchair fans watching on from the comfort of their own home in front of their own TV sets, you can now be fully immersed in the sounds of the game like you're right there in the stands with the new JBL BAR Series, with its signature surround sound, Soundshift technology and wireless subwoofers and Bluetooth streaming.
Socceroos fans will be singing their lungs out in Russia this European summer, while we can look forward to plenty of English wit and the now-famous Icelandic Viking Clap at the 2018 World Cup.
Here’s some of the best fan chants:
Northern Ireland didn’t quite qualify for the 2018 World Cup, but their chant about Will Grigg being “on fire” was all the rage during their appearance at the 2016 European Championships, becoming one of the most downloaded tracks in the UK! The parody is from Gala’s ‘Freed From Desire’ and, for the record, Grigg didn’t score at the Euros.
Staying in Britain, Scotland almost missed out for Russia but back in 2007 when they faced Italy the ‘Tartan Army’ famously chanted “deep fry your pizzas, we’re gonna deep fry yer pizzas”.
Of course, how can you go past Liverpool’s ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’. For one of the biggest renditions, you can’t go past the Reds’ visit to the MCG in 2013.
