The official anthem of Championship of Europe on football “This One’s For You,” wrote one of the most famous and in demand today in the world of electronic musicians David Guetta. It was recorded together with the Swedish singer Zara Larsson. “To be part of such a large football tournament at home is incredibly exciting, – shared impressions Guetta in an interview to foreign publications, – I am very excited. Music and football are one when we are talking about celebration and enjoyment, and I want to help to make this Euro the loudest, most memorable in history, because I had the honor to create not only a hymn but all of the music League, and to play his set on his opening and closing”.

Electronic guru help and are fans themselves: for example, the Internet blasted the news that as a sign of tolerance towards each other fans of national teams of Ireland and Sweden before the game, sang the legendary song ABBA “Dancing Queen”, and probably guests of the championship, which will last until 10 July, in addition to tracks, selected and written by David Guetta, will hear many musical improvisations during this time.

Chanting a variety of hits from pop to rock during the games – has long been the actual trend due to which sporting activities have become more interesting, and the artists get a nice bonus for his own glory. So, football fans at the time, turned into chants songs of Queen “We Will Rock you!” and “We Are The Champions” (the latter, incidentally, is still popular among fans of other sports), incendiary single, Depeche Mode 1982 “I Just Can’t Get Enough”. Hit the “dispatch” was first sang at the 2009 games Shotlandskoi Premier League, after changing the first line “when I see you baby, crazy” “baby” “Celtic” – the name of your favorite club. Then it began to play and the fans of English teams Bolton Wanderers”, “Burnley”, as well as the Icelandic fans. Of the more modern bands in the history of football came in The White Stripes with their “Seven Nation Army” which is most loved by the Italians at the world Cup in 2006, and is often included after scoring in the European stadiums. Choose famous songs as their anthems, and the players themselves. So, in the mid-1960s, the English club “crystal Palace” made anthem song of Dave Clark’s “Glad All Over” (which, incidentally, was the first thing written by the Beatles, which was in the top ten of the us album charts). The ballad “Blue Moon”, which was performed, in particular, Louis Armstrong, and Elvis Presley was proclaimed the anthem of Manchester city after fans sang its shrill after the match the teams with Liverpool in 1990. “Three Little Birds” Bob Marley was a song-the mascot of the Dutch “Ajax” and “Pigbag Song” (the only hit of the post-punk band Pigbag) – English “Middlesbrough”.

Russian fans their quirks. For a long time one of the most popular songs that they performed from the stands at the European visits, was the “Katyusha” to the music by Matvei Blanter, but later it suddenly “replaced” “do you Know” singer Maksim and “Other lips” “Up the Peninsula”. Why fans made such a strange choice, it is not clear even by Russian players.

Not only the songs played during the matches and bring together musicians and athletes: many famous actors they like to play football. Avid football fans in the past were the Beatles, Bob Marley. Among the living — frontman of Iron Maiden’s Steve Harris, who as a child was literally torn between music and sports, Robbie Williams, who is friends with David Beckham and estroil stadium in the backyard of his Villa, Julio Iglesias, played professionally in the youth team of real Madrid, soloist AC/DC Brian Johnson, Elton John, 11 years, former President of the club, “Watford”, Rod Stewart and the leader of the “spleen” Alexander Vasiliev. Apparently, music and football love is strong, naive and not faint ever.
