Football Anthems

Sporting event singing is not unique to the Anglosphere nor to Britain specifically.

It’s simply that our culture takes it to a higher dimension.

Listen no further than this exhibition of one football or soccer anthem in full-flourish. Remember, here you are seeing and hearing a 95,000 Australians singing an English football anthem, in a sport less popular there than cricket, Australian Rules Football, rugby and rugby league.

Cultural cousins in full embrace.

It’s palpable. It’s alive.


For more about our singing and musical traditions, listen to A Soldier’s Song, King’s College Carols, Mo Ghille Mear, The Lark Ascending and Zadok The Priest.
