Skepta just hosted the biggest and most exclusive football tournament of the summer – and we're not talking about Euro 2020. To celebrate the drop of his first ever football boot with Nike, which saw him become the first music artist to collab with the Swoosh on a boot, Big Smoke brought together friends and family for an evening of football to crown the winners of the Sk Cup.

On a rooftop pitch overlooking London's skyline, four 7-a-side teams competed for the trophy including Skepta's very own Team Sk, Team Homecoming, Starz League, and VERSUS. Taking to the pitch were some of the most influential names from music and culture including Skepta, Maximum, Shorty, Jme, Chip, Avelino, Don EE, NSG, Teezee and PK Humble – while Alhan and Irene Agbontaen took on hosting duties.

After a big afternoon of action, Starz League lived up to their name and deservedly took home the trophy – giving the Phantom Sk's another moment of glory after Mason Greenwood originally debuted the boots on pitch and bagged at the highest level. Serious tekkers.

The Nike Phantom Sk alongside the Nike Sk Air Max Tailwind are now available to purchase via the SNKRS app.
