Soccer is a huge sport in countries all around the world (for the uninformed, they call it football) except for in the United States. However, that might change soon as Diplo — along with a group of investors — just bought a stake for Arizona United, a soccer team based in Phoenix. The super-producer shares in a statement:
“I’ve been really fortunate to travel all over the world and experience different cultures through music. Wherever I am, Jamaica, Spain, England, China, etc., soccer is a social constant. I wanted to figure out a way to get involved with the game and team sports so when Arizona United presented itself, I immediately jumped at the opportunity. I see soccer the same way I see music, as a connective tissue linking the world’s cultures.”
