Fans flags chanting

Saturday mark's the opening match of the 2020 MLS season. One of the best parts of 'Caps home matches is the passionate support of the club's supporters groups.


Below are a number of their chants. Learn them, lend your voice, and join in supporting the team on the pitch!


ALL FOR YOU
(We usually do this to start the second half…it starts with everyone putting their arms on the shoulders of their the person next to them…and sways back and forth)


Oooooooh,
Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh,
Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh,
Oh-Oh-Oh, All for you, Vancouver!!! (Take your arms off your neighbour, grab and raise a flag, 2-stick, or your scarf)
Shaaaaaaaah, La La La La La,
La La La La La,
La La La, All for you, Vancouver!!!


THE ALLEZ OH
Allez, Allez, Allez Oh x2
Whitecaps FC, you’re the one for me!


BOUNDARY ROAD
(Based on John Denver’s classic Country Roads, this song is a reminder of the Southsiders’ origins at Swangard Stadium on Boundary Road. Usually sung with scarves held high at the start of each half.)


Boundary Road, take me home,
To the place where I belong.
Vancouver, pretty mama,
Take me home, Boundary road.


CARE FREE
(Loosely based on a tune from “Lord of the Dance”)


Caaaaaaaaare free!
Wherever you may be,
We’re from Vancouver BC,
And we don’t give a toss,
Wherever you may be,
We’re from Vancouver BC! 


COME ON VANCOUVER
Come on,
Come on Vancouver,
We’re together, Supporting you tonight!


EH OH
Sha, La, La, La, La, La
Sha, La, La, La, La, La
Sha, La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La
Vancouver here we go, eh oh!


EIGHT-SIX
(A reminder of our roots as a Vancouver 86ers supporters group, as well as a nod to Vancouver’s founding in 1886. This song is sung, winning, losing or tied, to the refrain of The Beatles’ Hey Jude during the 86th minute of play at every game)


Naaaaa, na na, na na na naaaaa,
Na na na naaaaa,
Eight six. 


I AM A VANCOUVERITE
(To the tune of Anarchy In The UK)


I am a Vancouverite!
I cheer for the blue and white!
Don’t know what I want but I know how to get,
I want to destroy TFC! (or Montreal! Or Seattle, or Portland, you get the idea)
‘Cause I… want to be…
Whitecaps FC!


JUST CAN’T GET ENOUGH
(A tweaked version of the Depeche Mode classic)


When I see you, Whitecaps,
I go out of my head,
I just can’t get enough,
I just can’t get enough,
All the things you do to me,
And all the things you said,
I just can’t get enough,
I just can’t get enough
Here in the Southside, I’m falling in love,
And I just can’t seem to get enough
(while bouncing)
Do do do-do-do-do-do,
Do do do-do-do-do-do.


THE KODA
Allez, Allez
Whitecaps Allez
I swear I wouldn’t want it any other way

WHEN THE OPPOSITION SCORES ON US
