The Prodigy - The Prodigy Sponsor Youth Soccer Team

Electronic dance stars The Prodigy have signed up to sponsor a youth soccer team in their native England.

The Eastleigh Reds, who are all under 13 years old, will wear blue shirts with The Prodigy's name and ant logo stamped across the chest during the 2012-13 season.

The band agreed to help finance the youngsters, who are based in Hampshire, south England, after keyboardist Liam Howlett heard they like to train to the group's track Warriors Dance.

Team coach Chris Chapman tells Britain's Nme, "I'm blown away that Liam was up for it. The team were stoked and immediately started asking if The Prodigy could come to see them. It's a good match though because the lads are a bunch of football prodigies."
