Music City is going mad for Major League Soccer. Due to overwhelming demand, Nashville SC is making more tickets available to fans by opening up sections across the 300-level of Nissan Stadium.
Club CEO Ian Ayre noted that more than 30,000 tickets had already been sold for the team’s inaugural MLS match against Atlanta United FC on February 29. He had previously called a total sell-out of Nissan Stadium’s 69,000 an ultimate goal.
“Surpassing the 30,000 tickets sold already represents the largest crowd in Nashville SC’s short history in professional soccer,” Ayre said in a statement. “We want to keep the momentum going and show everyone here in Nashville and around the world that Nashville SC has arrived in the Major League, with a historic attendance. It’s the hottest ticket in town and we are promising to put on a world class show and a night to remember. Everyone should want to play their part in this historic night for Nashville.”
Nashville SC is set to celebrate their MLS debut with a fan-oriented Kickoff Week. Soccer enthusiasts and novices alike are invited to take part in the fanfare around Nashville, including a 5k race around Nissan Stadium, pub crawl, and community service initiatives.
