|“We were honored when Concacaf approached us to re-work my song Lions. This song and the message of collective strength and resolve is fitting when we think of women on and off the pitch. The women competing in this tournament are inspirational and we hope Lions connects with them, their fans and the next generation!” said Skip and Cedella Marley.According to a Concacaf press release, the song is part of the confederation’s effort to engage fans in authentic and innovative ways as the organization is steadfast in its commitment to growing women’s football.
