    The first and last are wrong. The middle two have the same meaning, and I think are both correct. The third one is the one that would be the most common.

    I don't know who the cheer for.

    I don't know who I cheer for.

    I don't know who to cheer for.

    I don't know who do cheer for.
    Number 1 may be a typo (?) for "I don't know who they cheer for."

    Number 2 makes sense, but would sound better in the continuous tense ("I don't know who I'm cheering for.")

    Number 3 makes prefect sense, and sounds perfectly normal.

    Number 4 doesn't make sense at all.
