Under the theme “One Nation. One Team,” Fiasco will be creating Spotify playlists and handle in-game music programming during the Send-Off Series for the men’s team. In addition, the ‘Old School Love’ artist will appear at Fan Appreciation Day on May 30 in New York and perform a music set in Chicago prior to the men’s soccer game against Ghana on June 16.

The U.S. Soccer organization is also promoting Fiasco’s just-released single, ‘Mission,’ in which the rapper delivers empowering words to help those battling cancer.

Meanwhile, pioneering graffiti artist Futura will be designing the Men’s U.S. Soccer team’s poster, limited-edition skate deck and more.
