Euro 2024: UEFA changes goal anthem in Hamburg stadium

The fans of Hamburger SV did not like the goal anthem during the European Championship group stage in their own stadium. Now a change could be heard.

The FC St. Pauli goal anthem will no longer be played in Hamburg’s European Championship stadium. The European Football Union UEFA apparently made the change in response to criticism from HSV fans who normally attend the second division team’s home games in the arena.

New European Championship goal anthem for Croatia vs. Albania in Hamburg

When Albanian Qazim Laci scored the 1-0 goal against Croatia in the preliminary round of Group B on Wednesday, an excerpt from “Seven Nation Army” by the band The White Stripes was played over the stadium loudspeakers. During the first European Championship match on Sunday between the Netherlands and Poland (2-1), “Song 2” by the British rock band Blur was played in the Volksparkstadion after the goals.

However, since this song has also been the goal anthem of city rivals FC St. Pauli for many years, there had been protests from HSV fans.

“Most important message: I have heard your complaints regarding ‘Song2’ by Blur, and UEFA has actually adapted the goal song for today (out of solidarity with HSV),” said HSV stadium announcer Christian Stübinger, who will also be on the microphone at the European Championships, before the final whistle.
