The crowd at IEM Rio Major CS:GO is chanting to Brazilian teams nonstop. What are they saying?

There are some motivational chants and some that are not approriate for all ages.

The crowd at the IEM Rio Major is arguably the MVP of the $1.25 million tournament thus far. The fans have been doing it all since the start of the event on Oct. 31: chanting, hoisting flags, and playing musical instruments.

All the chants are being yelled out in Portuguese, however, meaning that the international CS:GO community doesn’t quite understand what the Brazilian fans are chanting. There have been several chants for FURIA, Imperial, 00 Nation, and even 9z, a South American mix that features Brazilian AWPer Lucas “nqz” Soares.

Most of the inspiration for these chants at the IEM Rio Major comes from soccer chants in Brazil. Here are some of the best ones that the crowd has used thus far.

FURIA chants

Portuguese chantEnglish translation
“Olê, olê, olê, olá, FURIA, FURIA”There’s no exact translation to this. This type of chant is usually used when the team in question is playing well.
“Poropopo po po po po, Poropopo po po po po, a FURIA veio pra vencer, e o outro time se foder!”There’s no exact translation of “poropopo.” The rest of the chant, however, is translated to something like this: “FURIA came to win, and the other team can screw themselves!”
“Vou torcer pra FURIA ser campeão, La Tribonera, meu caldeirão!”“I’ll cheer for FURIA to win, the Tribo Stadium, my cauldron!”
“Vem pra Tribonera, eu quero ver o arT sem coleira!”“Come to Tribo Stadium, I want to see arT without a leash!”

Other chants

“O-o-o-o, vamos ganhar, 9z!”“Let’s win this game, 9z!”
“Levanta, levanta, levanta!”“Stand up, stand up, stand up!”
“Uh vai morrer, uh vai morrer, uh vai morrer!”“You’re going to die, you’re going to die, you’re going to die!” This one is usually used when there’s a player left on the enemy team.
“Eu sou brasileiroooo, com muito orgulhooo, com muito amooor!”“I am Brazilian, with a lot of pride, with a lot of love!”
“Guerreirooos, guerreirooss, time de guerreiros!”“Warriors, warriors, you’re a team of warriors!”
“Acabou o amor, isso aqui vai virar o inferno!”“Love is over, this arena will turn into hell!”
“Uh é 9z, uh é 9z!”“Oh it’s 9z, oh it’s 9z!”
“Ei BIG vai se foder, a 9z é muito maior do que você!”“Hey BIG screw yourself, 9z is much bigger than you!”
“ZywOo, não leve a mal. Eu te xinguei mas era contra a Imperial!”“ZywOo, don’t take it wrong. I cursed you because you were playing against Imperial”
“Vergonhaaaa, vergonhaaaa, time sem vergonha!”“Shame, shame, shameless team!”

The energy produced by the Brazilian fans hasn’t gone unnoticed. The English-speaking casters have brought up how passionate the crowd has been and even Valve, the developer of CS:GO, praised the fans.

“There’s never been a crowd like this at a Major and it’s only day one,” Valve said on CS:GO‘s official Twitter account.

The Challengers Stage and Legends Stage of the IEM Rio Major had crowd every day at the Riocentro venue, where the matches were played in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The playoff action are feature a bigger crowd at the Jeunesse Arena in Rio.
