Chant your way to a small fortune!
When it comes to football chants, every season British football fans outdo themselves with imaginative songs. At any Premier League stadium across the country on a Saturday afternoon you’ll be able to hear some classic chants, many of which are much more intelligent than ‘Glory, Glory Man United!’ The songs that focus on specific players that have become cult heroes at their clubs are particularly impressive, and while some chants, such as recent Wayne Rooney ones and songs directed at the former Liverpool owners, can’t be repeated here, it doesn’t mean that their lyrics aren’t extremely clever.
It’s not only football fans who cheer on their teams either, as cricket supporters are known to like a good sing song. The England cricket team is always well supported by the Barmy Army and just like their football counterparts, everywhere Andrew Strauss and co. go they’re followed by trumpeters to get the crowd singing and to add to the atmosphere. Somewhat surprisingly, England’s main rivals the Aussies are one of the few cricketing nations not to have an iconic cricket chant, and with the Ashes on the horizon that’s something that needs to be put right. To rectify this the Australian nation is being invited to come up with a brand new chant.
MILO is encouraging Aussies to compose and record their own cricket chant to be in with a chance of winning $10,000. In just a few weeks time the Aussies will be attempting to win back the Ashes from the Pommes and Ricky Ponting’s men need a chant that the whole crowd will know so that it will spur the team on. Without a great song the SCG will be drowned out by chants of ‘Barmy Army, Barmy Army, Barmy Army.’ That’s something no Australian cricketing fan wants!
To be in with a chance of winning $10,000 all you need to do is record and then upload your cheer video to www.milo.com.au where you’ll also find more information about the competition. This will help the Aussie cricketing faithful to get one up on England’s Barmy Army and by cheering your boys on you can play your part in helping Australia win back the little urn. It’s about time that fans of the Australian Cricket Team had an awesome cricket chant to sing as they watch the Pommes getting hammered in the Ashes!
