Campione 2000 was the official song of the European football championship 2000 in the Netherlands and Belgium. It was performed by Swedish musician E-Type and written by E-Type, Rick Blaskey and Kent Brainerd, it gained a huge popularity during the tournament and has since been heard in football games around Europe, both in national and international games. It translates as "Champion" in English.

The chorus of the song resembles the chorus of a Dutch popular song "Oranje Boven" which insist the link between Netherlands with the Royal Dutch Family and a national chant honoring the red-white-blue tricolor Dutch national flag.

The song was included in E-Type's album Euro IV Ever (2001), and in the Sport Edition of Loud Pipes Save Lives (2004), it was also included in The Official Euro 2000 Album.
