It's a funny fact, but it so happened that the song "Do you know", once loved by teenagers, has also become the unofficial anthem of Spartak fans.
Nobody knows for certain the reason for choosing this particular song, but there are several versions.
There is an assumption on this score. Adults, hefty, real men sing a soulful song. Probably, they want a kind and affectionate friend next to them.
Because at one time this song was covered by the Clockwork Times, a well-known group of football parties (the group has existed since 2002, but the video has only been available since 2016, alas).

In the spring of 2014, Spartak came to Kazan to play with Rubin. During the break of any match, in any city, they always play music, some famous songs, mostly hits of this or last year. That time they turned on the song Maxim - "Do you know", apparently, based on the fact that Maxim herself is from Kazan. Since the song is a hit, and everyone knows the lyrics, Spartak's fan sector began to sing along. What happens when several thousand Spartak fans start singing along can be seen on YouTube - there are a lot of videos from this match. Suffice it to say that Rubin's fans were shocked and applauded Spartak's fans after the song ended. In August 2014, Spartak again came to play in Kazan and the song was played again at the stadium during a break, apparently keeping in mind the masterpiece of spring performance. The fans sang heartily again. Since then, Kazan has included this song at the matches of Spartak every year. In the fall of 2016, the story continued - the singer Maxim was invited to the hockey match of Spartak, where she performed her hit during the break, and everyone sang along with pleasure again. Since then, everything has gone.
In my opinion, fans of almost any team sing, and the reason is your internet.
In the old days, when Zhezheshechka was still alive, there was such an active, interesting and mocking community ru_football. And then one of the participants somehow posted a report on the visit to the concert of the singer Maxim in the style of a report on a fan trip.
And, in fact, that's all. Maxim entered the stands.
We started singing after this song was played after the matches, when the supporters of one team leave the stadium, while others sit and wait for them to be released. This can take a long time. On the scoreboard, cartoons were included, then songs. From there it went. The words are light, singing in unison is a pleasure. "Others' hands" seem to have appeared the same way. They sang about Valera, but after Karpin left, there was no one to sing.
Because the heart is Spartacus. And the words "his heart is now in your hands" are addressed to the head coach of Spartak, as the fans trust their Spartak to the new coach and believe in him and ask him not to lose or break.
On the sectors, lyrics of Russian pop songs are often heard. There are no special ties to clubs, matches. This is a general joke. "Alien Lips" by the Ruki Vverkh group, for example, has long been very popular with fans. It can be successfully assumed that this song was first sounded to the address of some football player who moved to another club. And then he appears on the field already in the colors of the other team, and he is charged with someone else's lips that caress you, and so on. If you get close, you can find some specific reasons for their implementation. But in general it is a mixture of banter and "shiza" (vivid behavior of fans in the sector). Just fun.
In this there is no hidden history and no secret meaning. Moreover, it is sung not only by Spartak fans, but also by CSKA. It just so happened that about 7-8 years ago, this song fell in love with the fans. But after they began to sing it at the stadiums, FC Spartak began to invite MakSim to matches, for example, with Rubin. This team is from Kazan, like the singer herself. At the matches "Spartak" - "Rubin" she is present every year. This is not to say that the club encourages this, rather, does not ignore it.
MakSim herself is well aware of her popularity among fans, I asked her this question at a press conference. She sometimes goes to football, through which she tries to socialize. At the same time, she herself is a fan of Rubin.
I will add, the fans sing "Katyusha", Yesenin's poems "Yes! Now it's decided! No return ... ”, and this also has no secret meaning.
I am a fan of Spartak and love MakSim, and when these two things happen at the same time, my heart rejoices uncontrollably. When there was a celebration of the championship of "Spartak", this song was charged around the stadium.
Maybe once Spartacus walked barefoot to Vesuvius, hiding from the Roman army, well, or he always walked barefoot, maybe. Or the players play without sparing their feet)
A very strange coincidence, but when MakSim came to our city in 2007, she performed at the Spartak stadium. But that's not the reason. I don't know why I wrote this now.
In the "tracklists" of football fans, songs generally end up in a rather random way: the song is hype, the motive is known to everyone, the words are simple, the chorus is remembered, so you can make it the unofficial anthem of the club. But with "Do You Know" the story is interesting: it is sung not only by Spartak fans, but in general by everyone who is not too lazy.
If you dig deeper, then everything is aggravated by the fact that even Spartak fans themselves cannot to unequivocally answer why this particular song received such a special honor. According to one version, it's all about the lyrics, it is very symbolic (in terms of how the song conveys the feelings of fans during away matches): "Do you know, along the night roads, I walked barefoot, sparing no feet." According to another, the composition was just a local meme, which grew into something more, gradually moving to stadiums of many thousands. And the third version generally says that it was just somehow cut in once at some match, and it started. Who knows, as they say.
Actually, see for yourself how it all looks:
Because fans of FC and HC Spartak are very fond of this song and perform it during home matches, celebrating goals or victories in cups, it slowly became more and more popular. Now this song is something like the unofficial anthem of the club.
You can find many recordings performed by Spartak fans on the Internet.
