Sure, they play sweatastic 6-hour live sets — but can some of the world’s top DJs handle two 30-minute periods of full-on charity football (European for soccer, y’all)?!
We’ll find out who’s got more game when #TeamSweden and #TeamNetherlands face-off on the field to fight AIDS this Wednesday, March 21 during Miami Music Week, a fist pumpin’ fest takin’ over the city’s dance floors for the next five days.
Each squad features some of the biggest names in electronic dance music, including global club legend Tiësto, who’s already showing his team spirit on Twitter as the Dutch Captain and co-founder of DJ Football Games (Sebastian Ingrosso is his Swedish counterpart):

Each international spin king will be rockin’ a customized jersey in their country’s colors that they’ll sign and donate to a charity auction run by (RED) with all proceeds going to the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa.
(RED) is also filming and streaming the live footwork on their YouTube Channel, so you can totally catch your EDM MVPs kickin’ for a cause even if you’re not mixin’ it up in Miami.
