Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi the Australian Sports Chant
Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi
"Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi", also spelt "Ozzie Ozzie Ozzie, Oy Oy Oy", is a chant often performed at Australian and International sporting events.
The chant is usually performed by a crowd, coming together to cheer for their national sports team or athlete. The alternate is for an individual chanter (lead chanter) to chant the line "Aussie Aussie Aussie!" and the crowd to respond with "Oi Oi Oi"
A sports chant of similar form, Oggie Oggie Oggie, has been used by football crowds in Britain for many years prior to "Aussie Aussie Aussie". "Oggie Oggie Oggie" is thought to have its origins in Cornwall or Scotland where the chant was used by women to call men from the mines for meals, the word "oggie" referring to a pasty.
The chant "Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi", gained popularity from the time of Sydney's Olympic bid and was widely used from the onset of the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, being heard at many public entertainment venues, and also on public transport.
The catchy song (Video) below captures the Aussie character of the chant.
