Edward Found Sounds: We’re Football Crazy, Football Mad!

Found Sounds is a SoundCloud community feature focusing on some of the most weird and wonderful sounds that can be found on SoundCloud. Count on new installments with some of our favorite sounds each Tuesday!

There’s something about the game of football that bring people together. At what other event would you see men and women of all ages coming together to chant, shout, laugh and cry at a ball? Each week masses of people visit their local stadium and put themselves through this roller-coaster of emotions. The sounds of elation when a goal is scored, or the groans of misery as your team looses are unique to these sporting events.

The British Premier League is the home of football and has some of the most entertaining and die-hard fans. Chelsea FC have recently joined SoundCloud to share with the world the dedication their fans show week on week to the team.

Liverpool FC are one of the most successful, long-running teams in the English league. Their infamous Kop end at Anfield Road is packed out each weekend as fans chant on ‘The Reds’.

Our local team here at SoundCloud is FC Union, who’re recognized as one of Germany’s non-conformist, “kult”, clubs run by the fans. After struggling financially for numerous seasons, FC Union are finally building up a following and have even made it up to the 2 Bundesliga. As a team lead by their fans, you can imagine they go pretty wild when they’re winning…

Whoever your team are, and whatever your chants, the sounds from inside a football ground are something that stay with you. Everyone remembers their first match and if you’ve never been to one, it’s worth it for the atmosphere alone.

That’s all for this week’s Found Sounds! Tune in next week for more crazy sounds from the ‘Cloud.

    Love this post. Sound is such a wonderful tool for examining culture.  It’s also great to celebrate the sonic layer of Football so often thrown away for music in highlight reels. So much emotion comes through fans voices!
