Premier Futsal Anthem: Virat Kohli and AR Rahman’s track is ADDICTIVE

The much-awaited anthem for Premier Futsal is out. Maestro AR Rahman and ‘It’ boy of cricket Virat Kohli are seen enjoying the peppy-techno beats of the song called Naam Hai Futsal. This is the first time that the Oscar Award-winning Rahman is lending his musical genius to a franchise-based sports league in the country.

At the launch the Mozart from Madras said, “I’m proud to associate with Premier Futsal for the league’s official anthem. It makes me happy to see such young entrepreneurs being passionate about the sporting scenario of the country and I wish them all the success in this venture. I’m especially excited to work with Virat Kohli on this, let’s hope he is as good with his melody as he is with his bat!”

Virat Kohli, the league’s ambassador said, “I have been a fan of AR Rahman for years. It will be a personal achievement and also a privilege to share the screen with him and lend my voice to the anthem of Premier Futsal.”

Premier Futsal is a franchise game for 5-a-side football game. Started by entrepreneurs Abhinandan Balasubramanian, Dinesh Raj and Nithyashree Subban, the league will have franchises representing Mumbai, Goa, Kochi, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Chennai, and Delhi. International players like Michel Salgado, Paul Scholes, and Deco will play alongside home grown talent. Over 50 International Futsal players from 21 countries will be part of the league.

Earlier, Virat’s participation in Premier Futsal might be in doubt after reports suggested that AIFF (All India Federation Football) is unhappy with the cricketer’s partnership with a rival league. Virat partly owns a franchise in the Indian Super League (ISL), so there might be a conflict of interest. However, looks like everything is sorted. So, what you waiting now. Check out the song anthem in the video right here:
