Ħamrun Spartans have unveiled the club’s new anthem featuring a hand-picked orchestra, passionate lyrics and a moving music video dedicated to fans past, present and future.
Ġieħ Għall-Passjoni Dejjiema embodies everything the Spartans have stood for since 1907 and all that they have recaptured over the past year after claiming the BOV Premier League for the first time in over three decades.
Shot at the club’s stomping grounds, the Victor Tedesco Stadium, and featuring a hand-picked orchestra by maestro Paul Borg, Ġieħ Għall-Passjoni Dejjiema evokes a sense of pride and passion that rallies its troops in support of the club.
With the addition of some recognisable faces taking the musical lead and a professionally-crafted music video, Ġieħ Għall-Passjoni Dejjiema is an anthem that will roll off the tongues of passionate fans and echo throughout the stadium as the club aspires to dominate the local football scene in its aspirations to become a household name across Europe.
“In Italy and England, every club has its own anthem. And like every big club, we too should have one,” club administrator Marcel Bonnici told Lovin Malta.
“The name we chose is a tribute to the passion of our supporters – past, present and future,” he said.
It has been a historic year for the Spartans who have dominated the local football scene following a change in management, attitude and approach that saw them rise to BOV Premier League champions after a 30-year drought.
In addition to a change in management, the Spartans also aggressively upped their social media presence, producing high-level content to keep its fanbase constantly engaged.
The club’s recent rejuvenation has attracted some of the island’s top footballers with the Spartans most recently acquiring national goalkeeper Henry Bonello.
Moreover, last season saw the club sign Ivorian professional footballer Seydou Doumbia who had previously played short stints at Newcastle and Roma.
And just last week, Spartans midfielder Matthew Guillaumier was named BOV Player of the Year.
