(GEMS RADIO)–Stormzy and Adidas are officially teaming up. The rapper is launching Merky FC to fight against inequality in soccer. Starting early next year, Merky FC will offer young Black people access to a host of multi-year, paid professional placements, and opportunities across the industry.

The London rapper stated,“If you can see that representation on the pitch with all the players, then it should at least be backed up by people in positions of power, positions of influence outside of being an actual footballer. Hopefully with what we’re doing we can drive a change.”

He added, “The statistics are shocking. I think it’s down to visibility a lot. Even growing up we didn’t see any Black managers, Black people on our screens in the media.”

Ah, finally some positivity in hip hop is happening.
