Soccer cheers, songs or chants are usually specialized according to the team the fans support. However, there are some that are used by many different sets of fans with some degree of customization. Some examples of these include “Glory Glory” and “Ole, Ole, Ole.”

In the “Glory Glory” chant, the words are said before the team name and set to the tune of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.” Some teams that use this chant are Tottenham Hotspur, Leeds United and Manchester United. “Ole, Ole, Ole” is a simple chant that repeats the same sound. Its origins are Spanish, but it is used internationally.

Other chants are particular to one team. For example, supporters of the Uruguayan national team sing “Soy Celeste, Soy Celeste, Celeste Soy Yo,” and England fans sing “Who Are Ya?”
