Make a noise

On Saturday's Five Live Sport, we're going to try something a bit different - always dangerous territory!
We want to know who are the loudest football fans in the country...

Our reporter, Mark Clemmit, will be in the crowd at the Doncaster v Scunthorpe match to get a feel of the atmosphere.

We're also looking for listeners to phone in and record the noise from their supporters - you can get more details here.

The thinking is that our radio coverage of football doesn't always capture what it's really like to be in the crowd.
With our commentators stuck on gantries or in a press box (sometimes high above the action) - it's difficult to convey the game's true atmosphere.

If you listen to golf on the radio, one of the great things is that the commentator is slap bang in the middle of the crowd - and it sounds great.

So who has the loudest fans? What do you think? Just a guess, but I reckon it probably isn't a club in the Premiership.
