WATCH: These epic English soccer chants put American sports to shame

Fan culture is very different in the English Premier League.

Each football team have a long tradition of chanting at home and away games. Some chants have been around from the very start, others develop spontaneously and many use the same formula.

This video shows you how a football stadium can be a banterful place, it’s the cornerstone of our sport. It’s about getting louder when your team are against the wall. It’s truly unique.

“Well, yes, but it’s not about the football.”
“You’re saying that football is not about football?”
“It’s the sharing,” she said. “It’s being part of the crowd. It’s chanting together. It’s all of it. the whole thing.”
