2018 FIFA World Cup Official Song

With the 2018 FIFA World Cup fast approaching, with just over a year to go until the world's most elite players descend into the host country of Russia, thoughts can begin to turn to the music that will surround the activities with a lot of talk centred around its official song.

Every year musicians and artists battle it out to be crowned the official song to the FIFA World Cup for their host nation. For the UK, what began as a tradition of World Cup songs in 1970, continues to this day, so long as England make it past the qualifying stages. Over the years we've seen many famous acts take the pledge to sing for country and team from the likes of David Baddiel and Frank Skinner with their smash hit 'Three Lions' to Ant & Dec and not to mention Ian McCulloch from cult band Echo And The Bunnymen. The list is pretty endless. Even New Order got in on the act back in 1990 who performed at last year's Primavera Sound Festival.

In addition to the participating countries choosing their own song of their choice to back their teams, the official host nation will also notably create a theme song for the duration of the tournament. This is all to create both a lasting image to the fans and to help aid with build-up preparations. With so many varied artists taking part, who's to know what will be crowned Russia's 2018 FIFA World Cup Official Song.

It goes without saying though, even those who do gain the much sought after title of its official song still risk becoming overshadowed by other artists deemed more popular by the general public, not something we can ever envisage being a prosperous time for all those involved after so much of their hard work. Perhaps they would have benefited from the attractive offers available from the online sports betting world that goes hand in hand with the upcoming competition. There are great betting sites that offer many exciting games and prizes for anyone who likes the thrill of winning big and getting behind their side. Who knows what song you could be listening to next year but at least there'll be more ways to win than one.
