Fresh off a match over the weekend that resulted in a tie against Guatemala, the U.S. Men’s National soccer team remained on top of their group in the FIFA 2014 World Cup qualifying event. Before a recent game, the team had a chance to check out The House of Marley on-ear headphones, and while they aren’t necessarily soccer headphones, the team seemed to be in agreement that they liked what they heard.
Midfielders Geoff Cameron and Jose Torres checked out pairs of Stir It Up, giving them unanimous thumbs up as they lounged pre-game. Midfielder Kyle Beckerman walked around the locker room rocking out with his Stir It Up on-ear headphones. Prepared for soccer, headphones in hand, lone goal scorer in the Guatemala game, Clint Dempsey didn’t say that our Destiny over-ear headphones helped him score, but we’re sure they didn’t hurt.
No matter what effect on soccer headphones have, House of Marley is happy to know that while qualifying for the 2014 World Cup, the U.S. Men’s team has been wearing our on-ear headphones. As the team continues onto the next round of CONCACAF (Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association) qualifying next year, we hope that House of Marley headphones continue to bring the team a little luck and a lot of rich bass.
With that being said, the team’s next match against Jamaica in September is making The House of Marley sweat a little bit when it comes to who to root for. Which team will win the epic match-up of soccer, headphones and national pride? We aren’t sure, but good luck to both teams, and especially to our new American team friends Cameron, Torres, Beckerman and Dempsey. May you continue toward your date with destiny in Brazil 2014. The House of Marley is rooting for you!
