When we started to fall in love with the beautiful game and the greatest team in world football, we knew very little about the singing tradition in English football. Now, after 10+ trips across the pond, we only stand in the Stretford end and sing until our voices are no more.

It’s time to dust off those windpipes and get ready to sing your heart out for the greatest team in the world. Below is the American Red Devils survival song guide for those fans looking to travel to Manchester United home or away matches.
