So what did you do with your day? One of the hardest working men in the industry decided to expand his brand to include a sports team. Diplo has led an investment group to purchase a minority equity in Arizona United SC.
“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,” Diplo said in a statement. “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.”
Of course, the team couldn’t be happier about the partnership.
“Diplo, throughout his music career as a DJ, Producer and Artist, has always been about global culture, youth culture and inclusiveness, and we couldn’t think of a better match to not only fit our core demographic, but to wrap our team around. The number of ways we can work together to grow the Arizona United SC brand is unlimited with a partner like Diplo.”
