Diplo Is Investing In His Own Soccer Team

Diplo-Soccer

Diplo, the 5-time Grammy-nominated producer who collaboratively transformed Justin Bieber‘s sugary pop track into one of 2016’s biggest club bangers, is now expanding his empire and leading a group of artists and music executives into a minority stake in Arizona United Soccer Club.

The 37-year-old Major Lazer DJ has involved TMWRK Management in his soccer club investment, and together they will hold a seat on Arizona United SC’s board of directors.

“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,” says Diplo. “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.”

Arizona United begins its 2016 campaign at LA Galaxy II on March 23rd.
