The Greatest Sports Theme Tune Bracket – The Final Four

We've reached the semi finals! We got an unbelievable amount of votes over the last 24 hours as we determined the final 4, with four pretty one sided quarter finals.

As predicted, the biggest threat to the top four seeds was Gazzetta Football Italia, who put BBC's legendary Grandstand theme on its arse, and advanced to the semi final.

We're not sure what you were thinking to be honest, but that's democracy for you. We'll learn to live with it.


Gazzetta now faces The Sunday Game, who had a very comfortable win over BBC's Formula 1, who were by far the toughest challengers in the remaining three ties.

Both Match of the Day and The Champions League have pulverised all that has been put in front of them in this competition so far, and they did it again in this round, both getting a ridiculous 91% of the vote.

So, here we go. Four songs left. Who will make the final? For the first time in the competition, we genuinely don't have a clue.


Have a listen to the songs to remind yourselves of their glory, and get voting!



Match of the Day (1) vs. The Champions League (4)


This side of the draw offers up the tie of the tournament - the irresistible force meets the immovable object. Both tunes have been so superior to everything put in front of them. Match of the Day has the tradition, and the number one seed, but that Champions League music is just so powerful. We can't call it.



The Sunday Game (2) vs. Gazzetta Football Italia (6)

Two great theme songs. The Sunday Game is undoubtedly better music, but GFI does what any great theme should, and fills you with excitement and nostalgia, putting you right back in front of the TV as a child.

The Sunday Game though shares this virtue entirely, so maybe the better tune might just shade it. We write off Gazzetta at our peril though...


So there you go. We're down to the best four sport's TV theme tunes of all time.

Get voting, and if your favourite is losing, tell your friends to vote (or if you have no friends, just open an incognito window and fill your boots).
