Speak Football & Team Picker
NBC Sports Group’s digital “Speak Football” guide teaches fans how to speak like a true Premier League club supporter. Fans can start by either choosing their team, or using NBC Sports Group’s team picker to answer a series of questions to find out which team they should consider supporting.
Once a team has been chosen, fans can peruse a crash course in football lingo, important terms and their teams’ chants and songs, and take a quiz to prove they have the knowledge of a true supporter.
In addition, fans can use the Speak Football “translator” to tweet to their friends by selecting a club and phrase that will be generated into a tweet in true British fashion.
