A Guide to Chants Atlanta United

Here in Georgia, our sports are top-notch. We dominate whether the Bulldogs are winning the national championship or the Braves are adding another World Series to their accomplishments. Now, one of the most exciting tickets in town is to watch some power football from Atlanta United. Are you considering going to a game yourself? Then you should know some basics of the club and chants to get the full experience. Read on, so you're ready for your first match.

Who Started Football Chants?

Football chants started back in the 1890s with Albert T. Smith for Norwich City but have since taken on lives of their own. Whether you just get a good “Hootie hoo United” or take a popular tune of the moment and add a player’s name.

When you’re at a game, be ready with your phone flashlights to add some brightness to your Atlanta United chant. Proud supporters groups will be singing loudly and proudly to show their love of the team — just be careful not to lose your voice at the game!

What Are the Atlanta United Chants?

Atlanta United FC joined Major League Soccer (MLS) in 2017. You’ll never see a number 17 jersey because this special number is dedicated to the fans to commemorate the year they started and the incredible fan support.

And that support can be seen clearly. Within only four years, the club has become the 9th highest attendance in the world.

With so much love for this team, it’s easy to imagine that the supporters section can get pretty rowdy. For the best experience, make sure you know each popular chant and join in with everyone else when you can. Of course, once you get to the game, if you know the words, you can easily join in.

We’ve included some of the chants below for you to learn, but you can also find videos with the chants online.

What Are the Atlanta United Chants?

Player Chants

Has a specific player made an impressive play — even scored a goal? Here’s what you should sing for each player.

When Josef Martinez scores, the Seven Nation Army tune is used to sing a special song for him.

Ohhhh! Josef Mar-ti-nez! (Repeat)

When the goalkeeper, Brad Guzan, makes a great save:

He’s Big!

He’s Bald!

He’s a mother-fucking wall!

Brad Guzaaaaaan!

Brad Guzaaaaaan!

G-U-U-U-Z!

ATL We Are Here

Here’s the chant that gets everyone in the stadium on their feet, and you’ll find many videos featuring ATL We Are Here. Don’t get to kickoff without knowing this one.

At the end of the song, use the opponent city name to really stick it to the opponents of the day. So, for example, if Atlanta is playing the Colorado Rapids, the opponent city name would be Denver.

We’ll use that in the example for the song, so you know where to insert the opponents’ city:

ATL we are here! Whoa-oh! (x2)

ATL we are here!

To sing and drink some beer! (yell)

Whoa-oh Oh-oh Oh!

U-N-I … T-E-D! Whoa-oh! (x2)

U-N-I – T-E-D!

United is the club for me!

Whoa-oh Oh-oh! Oh!

Scarves are up; Flags are high!

Whoa-oh! (x2)

Scarves are up; Flags are high!

Whoa-oh! (x2)

Scarves are up; Flags are high!

A-T-L until I die!

Whoa-oh! Whoa-oh! Oh!

Can you hear Denver sing?

No–oh! (x2)

Can you hear Denver sing?

No–oh! (x2)

Can you hear Denver sing?

I can’t hear a fucking thing! (yell)

No–oh! Oh-o! Oh!

Clap-Clap-Clap-Clap Vamos!

Perfect for any situation, this one just means “let’s go!”.

Vamos! Vamos! Vamos! A-T-L! clap-clap (Repeat)

Va-mo-o-o-o-os! A-T-L!

Love for Atlanta: No Puedo Parar & Translation

If you don’t speak Spanish, you may have heard this one and wondered what the fans are saying. The chant starts with a chorus of Olés and then breaks into this:

Cada dia te quiero mas!

Yo-o-o soy Atlanta!

Es un sentimiento

…no puedo parar

This means, “Every day I love you more! I am Atlanta! It’s a feeling that I can’t stop!”.

Sha-la-la-laaaaaaaaaaa

If I Had Wings of a Sparrow

If I had the wings of a sparrow,

If I had the ass of a crow,

I’d fly over (add the opponent’s city) tomorrow,

And shit on those bastards below!

Shit on, shit on, shit on those bastards be-looooow!

Shit on, shit on, shit on those bastards below!

The Sha-la-la-laaaaaaaaaaa starts with fans crouching and chanting more softly. You begin to rise and get louder and faster as it continues, making for a fun chant for everyone. Stay on your toes to keep up with each sha-la.

Sha-La (la repeats 6 times)

A–T–L…

Sha-La (la repeats 6 times)

U-ni–ted!

         

We Are the A from Way Down South

We are the A! clap-clap-clap-clap

From way down South! clap-clap-clap-clap

And we are here! clap-clap-clap-clap

Row-dy and Proud! clap-clap-clap-clap

Sha-la-la-la! (Repeat three times)

We Are Atlanta

We are Atlanta! (x2)

And we will follow where you go!

We are united! (x2)

We are the red, black, and gold!

Ooooh-ooo-oh

Ooo-ooh!

Ooh Ahh!

Ooo! Ahh! ATL! (Repeat)

Ohhhh! Atlanta U-n-i-i–ted! (Repeat)
