Whether The Beatles music has been used in the fields of football or other sports?

There have been a few times when a Beatles song was being played when The Bulls come back from a commercial break, and Paul McCartney played the Super Bowl a few years ago.

Hey Jude was played just before both legs of the recent Cardiff City v Crystal Palace match in the Carling Cup Semi Final, which is surely more than just co-incidence.

All Together Now was sung at many football grounds around the UK in the late 60's and early 70's.

Villarreal, a Spanish football team who play in La Liga, have the nickname Yellow Submarine.

Just read this in wikipedia

[Real Madrid] won the European Cup for a sixth time in 1966 defeating FK Partizan 2–1 in the final with a team composed entirely of same nationality players, a first in the competition. This team became known as the Yé-yé. The name "Ye-yé" came from the "Yeah, yeah, yeah" chorus in The Beatles' song "She Loves You" after four members of the team posed for Diario Marca dressed in Beatles wigs.

Darn beatles references popping up almost anywhere.
