NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nashville SC announced on Tuesday morning it had surpassed 6,110 Season Ticket Members for its first professional season, setting a new USL record for season tickets in a club’s inaugural season as the club and its fans continued to propel the soccer movement in Nashville forward.
“Nashville Soccer Club continues to deliver a record-setting inaugural season,” said Nashville CEO Court Jeske. “This is a testament to the support of our ownership, the growth of our game, and most importantly the passion of our fans. Thank you to the fans that have started this journey with us, and to everyone else, know that we are not done yet. You can still get on board.”
Nashville’s success in the stands has been matched by its success on the field, with the side sitting with a perfect 3-0-0 record at First Tennessee Park this season ahead of this Saturday’s game against North Carolina FC. League officials offered their praise on the club’s outstanding first professional season.
“All of us at the USL congratulate Nashville SC on this remarkable achievement,” said USL President Jake Edwards. “Their success has been emblematic of the what we’ve seen across the league thus far in 2018 as we continue to reach and exceed key milestones including surpassing the one-million mark in total attendance the earliest in our history.
“Nashville’s fans have exhibited tremendous passion for their club in its inaugural season and the atmosphere they have created throughout the organization is a great credit to Nashville CEO Court Jeske and his staff. They have done a tremendous job in reaching this landmark moment for the club, and they should be very proud of their effort.”
Nashville’s Season Ticket Member mark is expected to continue to grow with the club having more than two-thirds of its home schedule in the 2018 regular season still yet to be played. The club opens a four-game homestand will this Saturday night against North Carolina FC at First Tennessee Park, with the run of games set to culminate in Nashville’s premier Summer Of Soccer event on July 7 at Nissan Stadium when the side hosts regional rival FC Cincinnati.
