Are Wednesday Fans The Loudest?

Are Wednesday Fans The Loudest?

Wednesday fans have always thought of themselves as one of the best bunch in the country, and now is our turn to make it official as the 'Real Football Roar' awards take to the road during the start of the new Football League season to measure how loud each club's fans really are.

The award, launched by Sky Sports motormouth Chris Kamara, aims to encourage fans from accross the country to play an active, and vocal, role in welcoming back another season of 'real football'.

Officials from the Football League will travel up and down the country during the first two weeks of the new season to measure the decibel levels at every Coca-Cola Football League match, with the winners having the bragging rights of being the loudest in the land!

Football League Chairman Lord Mawhinney said: 'The start of the new season is an exciting time for all supporters and the atmosphere they generate is vital to the spectacle of League football.

'The 'Real Football Roar' award is something that all fans will want to win for their club and I encourage everyone to make themselves heard as the big kick-off approaches.'

Officials from the Football League will visit Hillsborough for the Owls first home match of the new season against Luton Town on Tuesday 8th August and again against Burnley on Saturday 12th August - so make sure you save your voices for the game and get behind the team! The measurements will be taken as the teams emerge from the tunnel.

Coca-Cola Football League Ambassador, Chris Kamara, said: 'I think this is a great idea' he said 'and I would encourage all supporters to get along to their local club's 'Real Football Roar' match and sing their hearts out for the lads.'

Wednesday will face tough competition as the Championship looks to be one of the toughest divisions in recent seasons. Sunderland, Birmingham City, Leeds United, Cardiff City, and West Bromich Albion are all likely candidates for the award.
