"We wanted an authentic name and identity in the sport. He says exactly who we represent and who we are, Nashville Soccer Club, "said Ian Ayre, CEO of Nashville MLS. "Our announcement is another step forward and we have many more to do, but it is important to start with a clear identity of who we are."
The team will start playing at home in the Nissan Stadium in 2020. The following year, it will play in its new stadium at the exhibition grounds.
The construction of the new stadium is expected to begin this summer. Several other buildings on the site must have work done first so that events such as the flea market can continue to function.
