Football Team Music – Can You Guess The Football Team From Their Song?

By Ian John
December 6, 2023

Football and music have always had a close bond. Before the game, as fans are buying their programmes and pie, your club’s incumbent DJ will be playing a number of songs ahead of the game.

Some of those songs may be the latest chart hits, but some will become inextricably linked to the football club.

Often these links can be tenuous and stretch far back in time with an intriguing story as to why this song is particularly associated with the football club in question.

For others, it is just a song that has captured the imagination of a fan-base and which through the repetition, has caught on.

Now while you can still enjoy a wager on these games over the festive season with bet365 Sport, we thought it may be a nice way to ease into the festive period with a little look at some of the songs linked with football teams in the UK, as well as some others from around the world too!

And we’re going to do that by way of a quiz, to make it a little more interesting!

So, let’s get cracking with a look at our first song or piece of music linked with a specific football club (or sometimes two) with a couple of clues to help you make the link!

Guess The Football Team From The Song Most Associated With Them

  1. Guess the club… a nice easy one to start with!
YouTube video

There’s no need to hammer home the fact that this football club provided key players for the England 1966 World Cup Winning team, including skipper Bobby Moore and hat-trick hero Geoff Hurst. More recent heroes include Dmitri Payet, Paolo Di Canio, Tony Cottee, Billy Bonds and Jarrod Bowen!

YouTube video

Superstars of the team include Francis Lee, Colin Bell, Mike Summerbee, Tony Book, Peter Barnes and more recently Ilkay Gundogan, Riyad Mahrez, Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and Braut Inge Haaland.

  • Guess the club…a little tougher, but not too much.
YouTube video

The song is called Liquidator and was released in 1969 by the Harry J All Stars and it featured Winston Wright on organ. A reggae classic that is now heard around one popular London football team’s ground that is also the name of a famous Civil War battlefield.

  • Guess the club… or clubs as more than two teams use this famous anthem.
YouTube video

One very famous football club uses this instantly recognisable classic from the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Carousel, but do you also know which other British club uses it as their theme on European nights?

  • Guess the club… now we are getting a little more difficult…
YouTube video

Fans in the football team in Black and Gold will instantly recognise this 1970s classic by Jeff Beck. From Ron Flowers, to Tommy Wright and more modern legends like Steve Bull, this is a song that Pedro Neto and company will walk out to each home game.

  • Guess the club…This one should be relatively easy for most!
YouTube video

They could perhaps get the Z-Cars police in to find out where their lost ten points have gone. The famous football club’s ground hosted World Cup 1966 games that featured Brazil, Portugal and North Korea. Legends include Howard Kendall, Alan Ball, Dixie Dean, Gary Lineker and more recently Duncan Ferguson, Dave Watson and Peter Reid.

  • Guess the club…Very famous club, but perhaps a tough song to link with them.
YouTube video

If you listen to the lyrics of the song, then you’ll get plenty of clues as to who walk out to this song. Sung by Louis Dunford, this song was adopted back in 2022, so it is not as well established as some of the other songs on this list. But it is used at the football club at this moment.

  • Guess the club… were travelling over the North Sea for this one…
YouTube video

An absolute classic from Jamaican legend Bob Marley, 3 Little Birds is arguably one of his most instantly recognisable classics. But do you know which famous Dutch football club have adopted this song as their own? Marco Van Basten and Johan Cruyff may give you a clue.

A 1960s hit for the Dave Clark Five, the song has been adoped by one of the London teams in the Premier League as their tune. It’s clear as the preverbial and you don’t need to visit the famous gaff in Buckingham to know who uses this tune. Just ask Roy Hodgson, Marc Guehi or Eberechi Eze.

  1. Guess the clubs…One current Premier League team, newly promoted and one Championship team, newly relegated, both use this classic dance track as their walk out music.
YouTube video

You’d have to be mad as a Hatter not to recognise this classic 90s dance tune by Tin Tin Out called Strings for Yasmin. Luke Ayling and his team mates will also recognise this as their football team’s song now they are in the Championship.
