Seat Selection For New Nashville SC Stadium To Begin For Season Ticket Holders

The new Nashville Soccer Club stadium is nearly done and the organization has begun the seat selection process for season ticket holders starting July 6.

Priority in the selection process will be determined by the initial purchase date of each season ticket membership, with First String Founding MLS Members receiving the highest ranking followed by Gold Priority, Blue Priority members, and any remaining priority members. In addition, The Backline Supporters will be the first to lock in their place in their dedicated Supporters Section.

“We wanted to reward those people who were committed the team early and that goes back even to our days in USL,” says Nashville SC CEO Ian Ayre. “it’s a nice opportunity to reward those who rewarded us with their support.”

So far, the club has sold close to 11,500 tickets for the new stadium not including any of the premium seating, according to Ayre. He says that the stadium is a huge attraction and believes the club will see an uplift in sales. He believes that the new stadium will be “the spiritual home of Nashville Soccer Club.”

Starting at $18 per match for First String Founding MLS Members in The Backline Supporters Section and $12 for children 12-years-old and younger, the new Nashville SC Stadium offers a large variety of options and pricing for everyone when gates open in 2022.

The stadium is on pace to open on time for May of 2022 with the steelwork and canopy set to be completed by August. Fans interested in purchasing tickets for next season can get a look at what the stadium will look like by taking a virtual tour. To purchase a Season Ticket Membership, click here.
