The Popdust Files: afrojack, soccer, swedish house mafia, tiesto

Oh, those European celebrities—assemble enough of them in one place, and you’re all but guaranteed that a charity soccer (NO WE’RE NOT GOING TO CALL IT FOOTBALL) match will break out. Such appears to be the case during Miami Music Week—which is totally a thing that is happening—where many of the continent’s finest famous DJs have converged for general mirth and merriment purposes. Rather than just spinning records, however, these guys are putting their cleats where their turntables are, taking to the field (sorry, pitch) this Wednesday to represent for their respective countries. According to MTV, the match will be split between DJs from Sweden and The Netherlands, and “will consist of two 30-minute periods with a ten minute break in between.” The teams are as follows:

Team Netherlands
Tiësto (Captain)
Nicky Romero
Sidney Samson
Sunnery James
Ryan Marciano

Team Sweden
Sebastian Ingrosso (Captain)
Adrian Lux
Dada Life (Olle and Stefan)
Otto Knows

Based on the assumption that the more famous team will be the better team—which seems like a safe bet to us—it appears this thing will be Team Netherlands’ match to lose. In either event, this might be the closest thing to the World Cup that we see on US soil until 2013, so let’s hope it’s getting carried on one of the fourth-tier ESPNs. WHO’S GONNA SAAAAAAVE THE WORRRRRRLD TONIIIIIGHT???
