The Guinness International Champions Cup, organized by Relevent Sports, a division of RSE Ventures, and broadcast by FOX, is the first-of-its-kind soccer tournament taking place across the globe with contests in Phoenix, San Francisco, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, New York, Miami and Valencia, Spain. Eight teams are taking part in the tournament including club teams from Spain, Italy, England and the United States.
“We could not be more thrilled about the exceptional list of world class teams playing in this year’s tournament,” said Charlie Stillitano, CEO of Relevent Sports. “This is a landmark event in soccer and Priyanka’s debut single “Exotic” brings to life the spirit of the tournament.”
On August 6-7, the tournament will culminate as the eight participating teams gather at Miami’s Sun Life Stadium to compete for the championship. Throughout the tournament, fans from around the world will hear Chopra’s billboard hit and Guinness International Champions Cup theme song, “Exotic.”
Said Priyanka Chopra “I’m really excited that ‘Exotic’ has been named the official theme song for the 2013 Guinness® International Champions Cup. As a new artist it’s such an honor any time an organization or brand chooses to use my music as their anthem. Last season my track “In My City” was released exclusively to the NFL as the featured song for the network’s Thursday Night Football series, and I would definitely be open to collaborating with other organizations like this in the future.”
