Football Sideline Cheers and Chants

Cheerleaders on the sideline

Football sideline cheers and chants can offer humor or whip the fans into a frenzy that will cheer your football team on to victory. Since a typical football game lasts several hours, a cheer list should contain at least 50 football cheers, chants and sidelines so the cheerleading squad is not repetitive during a single game. Use offense, defense, and general cheers and chants like the ones offered here.

Football Chants

Offense

Ten Yards

Ten yards, ten more yards,
For our team, it's not hard!
Give me a T-O-U-C-H-D-O-W-N!

B-E-A-T!

B-E-A-T!
B-E-A-T!
Beat those Rockets!
Beat those Rockets and fight
Tonight!
Touchdown! Touchdown! Touchdown!

The goal with this chant is to get the crowd shouting "touchdown." You may want to assign a couple of cheerleaders to hold signs with the words and encourage the crowd to shout with you.
