Hello everybody,

Is a football chant necessarily a song or can it be a short shouted phrase as well, like "Come on England"? If not, How do you call these short slogans.

Thank you in advance.

    Yes, I'd say "chant" covers pretty much everything rhythmical...

    In BrE, you wouldn't use "cheer" for a football (= soccer) chant, though.

    Here's a Wiki article telling you more than you could ever wish to know:D
