“Pitch Perfect will see the creation of a brand new football anthem to reflect football in 2005. It will be fully accessible, culturally reflective of the communities involved and, more than anything, fun for those singing it! Pitch Perfect aims to develop links between football and music. It draws upon the musical tradition present in football history through the commissioning of a brand new choral and instrumental work which is written to celebrate the ‘beautiful game’.”
The song will be premiered on Friday 18 November 2005 at Wembley Conference Centre. I look forward to hearing it.
Update: The Guardian posted an article which reports that Sepp Blatter wants to ban the playing of national anthems prior to internationals – perhaps they could be replaced by this song instead?
