In 2018, FIFA has commissioned Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe to made a theme music to be used at 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. The song, named "Living Football" to coincide with FIFA's new slogan, was played before every World Cup matches, as the volunteers began to unveil the giant 2018 FIFA World Cup logo (Replaced by the drawing of the FIFA World Cup Trophy in the final) at the pitch, along with the flags of the two nations in every match. The "FIFA Anthem" itself - which always played when the players are walking out of the stadium tunnel, was replaced by Seven Nation Army of The White Stripes. The trend continues at all its subsequent FIFA-sanctioned tournaments in 2018, including the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.
