The audio was easy to understand, you jus have to concentrate...

I don't have team-colours because I'm not a football fan, I'm used to use this excellent site for practice my English level.
I never went to a match, I don't like when people cheer for boo, that's very difficult for me.
I think that football fans feel very excited before to a match, they sing and wave their flag to cheer their teams to give their all on the field, that looks very exiting when I see in on TV, but, that's not for me.

It was pretty clear. My teams colour are white and blue. However their logo include yelllov colour to. Usually I do to the match with my friends or father. Before kick - off we go to the café and talk about match. For exemple about statistics , players who are injury or who is the best goal scorer of away team. We analyse our chance of winning.

Was the listening easy or difficult? The listening was a bit difficult because I was struggling with some answers.
What are your team-colours? My team colors are blue, navy blue and pink.
Who do you go to the match with? I went to the match with my assistant manager Mikel Arteta.⭐
What do you do before kick-off and how do you feel? Before kick off, I have a team talk with the players and I feel excited.

Hi!
I'm a little bit confused to match these words with the pictures. "Team colours", "waving", "cheering" and "singing" All of the pictures which are related to these words look like same. No big difference among them.

Hi Hsn5840

You're right. The pictures are similar and that makes the activity quite difficult. However, the team colours is the image with the fans wearing dark blue. The waving is the picture where the fans are wearing light blue and all have their arms straight up. I think it's supposed to be what we call a Mexican wave. The singing is the picture with one guy standing and singing and the cheering is the one with the guy with his mouth wide open. There's a woman beneath him who is also cheering. 

But it is not clear. It's not an easy set of vocabulary to illustrate in static images, though. 

Thanks

Jack

What is sometimes difficult to understand are the pictures but not the audio.
Red and white and black, so...Manchester United are the better football club trough history in England.
I go to matches with friends and girlfriends and alone as well.
I have a quick-one or a copper before the match specially when it’s an important match, that big ones where everyone is looking forward to it.
