We've gone football mad on Forvo!

October 17, 2016

Some of you may have noticed that recently we've gone a bit football crazy on Forvo. We see a lot of requests for the correct pronunciation of sportspeople's names on the site. Football, or soccer for those of you in the US, is a particular favourite, especially when the likes of Hakan Çalhanoğlu or Jakub Błaszczykowski are playing.

In order to help out we've created a series of guides to help you better pronounce some of those trickier names. We've put together pronunciation guides for the following footballing events. Learn how to correctly pronounce the names of the players in these competitions!

UEFA Champions League

English Premier League

Spain's La Liga

We'll continue to add more, but in the meantime, is there a sporting event you'd like us to feature? What names do you find difficult to pronounce? Write to us at info@forvo.com or tweet us @forvo with your ideas.
