Earlier this month, Premier Futsal announced that the superstar duo Virat Kohli and A.R. Rahman would come together to compose the anthem for the sport’s first ever multi-national semi-professional league slated to kick-off in India on July 15th. The anthem, titled, “Naam Hai Futsal”, features the musical genius of maestro A.R Rahman and uber-coolness of Virat, with the cricketer set to rap certain portions of the anthem. The full anthem will be released later this month.

Premier Futsal is a private and semi-professional Futsal league promoted by Mr. Xavier Britto of Indev Group. The league will be hosted from July 15 – 26, 2016 to create awareness of Futsal as a sport in India. Premier Futsal will make India the first country in the world to host a multi-national All-Star Futsal tournament that brings the legends of football and futsal together. The league will feature over 50 international futsallers from four continents and 21 countries. Each franchise will be assigned a marquee international football player, seven international and five Indian Futsallers through a player draft scheduled later this month.
The league will kick-off July 15, 2016, and will be telecast live and exclusive on Sony SIX, SONY ESPN and Sony AATH. Matches will also be available to live stream on Sony LIV.
