A local BBC Music Introducing DJ will also be embedded into each of the eight teams. Each DJ will curate a unique soundtrack that is reflective of their city and the people, players and artists within it. The music on offer at each match is designed to bring fans right into the action and will all be live. From walk out music, to match reaction sounds, the venue DJs are in full control of the sound of their team.
