Among all the songs performed throughout the football stadiums of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, “Cielo de un solo color”, sung by the Uruguayans, is the winner according to the Billboard.  


“Cielo de un solo color” by the band No Te Va Gustar, was not created with the intention of being the national team hymn of Uruguay at the World Cup in Russia, but as a tribute to all the Uruguayan emigrants who had to travel to other countries during the last economic crisis of 2002.  

During the Tabárez process, the Uruguay coach, with whom the Uruguayan national team came back to life, fans assimilated this song to a symbol of sporting hope, until they finally reached the 2018 World Cup in Russia, where it became the symbol we all know today.

This beautiful song is performed before and after each match in the football stadiums where the Uruguayan national team plays. This initiative seems to have been promoted by the Uruguayan national team players themselves.

This social event can be seen on social networks, through the thousands of videos that have been shared by fans, allowing you to see how in Russian stadiums, thousands of Uruguayans with passion sing this song.



Thanks to worldwide television broadcasts, the Billboard noticed this particular event. This weekly magazine from the United States, which is one of the oldest in the world, is famous for its specialized list of information about the music industry.
