According to Thomas Wesley Pentz, better known by his stage name Diplo, he sees soccer the same way he sees music — as a connective tissue linking the world’s culture. So when approached with the opportunity to invest in Arizona United Soccer Club, he didn’t hesitate. Within the music world, Diplo is most commonly known for his mission — about bringing global culture and youth culture together and making the world a smaller place.
As a five-time Grammy nominated producer and artist, he has worked on production and mixtape projects with many artists such as Britney Spears, Madonna, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber and more. Arizona United Soccer Club is Arizona’s only professional soccer franchise that was established in 2014.
Diplo linking with Arizona United Soccer Club could not be a better match up. His image is more than just a DJ, he is looked at as a music icon who brings the world together and the soccer tends to do the same thing. No matter where you’re at in the world, soccer is something that acts as a constant.
