NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nashville SC announced on Thursday it would be offering evacuees to the city from the potential arrival of Hurricane Florence free tickets to its two home games next week.
Anyone that presents a current North Carolina, South Carolina or Virginia ID to the First Tennessee Park box office on gameday for Nashville SC’s next two home games, against the Tampa Bay Rowdies on Tuesday, September 18 and Charleston Battery on Saturday, September 22, will be given a free ticket to the match.
“Our thoughts are with those who have been affected by the storms along the East Coast,” said Nashville SC CEO Court Jeske. “Sports can be a unifying experience in times of crisis, and while a soccer game is unimportant compared to a life-threatening storm, we hope a couple of hours of distraction and fun will allow for an escape from the realities of evacuating a home.”
Both of Nashville SC’s games next week will kickoff at 7:30 p.m. CT.
