After previously teaming up with Inter Miami for his inaugural “United At Home” event last month, a league-wide event with internationally-renowned DJ David Guetta arrives Saturday evening at 7 pm ET.
The show is set for a secret location that’ll be unveiled when his 90-minute set begins, with the MLS Unites initiative raising money to help those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It’s an honor to work with Major League Soccer and Heineken for the second edition of ‘United At Home’ this Saturday. As a DJ, the crowd is what makes a show spectacular and despite the world remaining indoors during this time, we will be united again this weekend,” Guetta said in a statement. “I will play from an iconic location in New York and the show can be enjoyed from homes around the world. I hope to see you on Saturday and together we can make a real difference in raising money to help communities in need.”
The show will begin after New York’s “daily clap” that acknowledges frontline and healthcare workers, and it’ll feature appearances from first responders and other surprise guests. Select fans over 21 at Heineken partner MLS clubs will receive exclusive access to a video conference room during the performance and could be featured on the global live stream.
“Nothing unifies and brings people together quite like music and soccer. ‘United At Home’ will provide a moment for us all to escape and celebrate, while creating tremendous impact for many worthy charities,” David Bruce, MLS SVP of brand and integrated marketing, said. “Major League Soccer is proud to join forces with a committed partner like Heineken and global icon David Guetta to build an event that connects soccer fans and leaves a positive impact in our communities.”
Fans can donate directly by visiting DavidGuetta.com/donate, with funds benefiting organizations such as The Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, Feeding America, Fondation Hôpitaux de Paris - Hôpitaux de France and the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
Fans are encouraged to join the global audience and watch Guetta’s performance safely from home through Guetta’s Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, Twitch, VK and TikTok channels. MLSsoccer.com, as well as the league’s Facebook, Twitter, Twitch and YouTube accounts, will also carry the live stream.
