Nashville SC announced it is partnering with Ensworth School for the club’s training facility.
Ensworth, a K-12 private school, will house what the team is calling a “state-of-the-art training facility for Nashville SC featuring turf and grass fields, locker rooms, technical offices and a team lounge” in a team press release.
The team said this type of facility is used by both MLS and USL clubs and it will provide the technical team with a comfortable space to use while training.
Construction on a prefabricated structure has already begun off site and will continue over the next month. The team said the structure will remain on Ensworth’s campus for the foreseeable future.
Nashville SC announced it will begin training at the facility next week as the team opens up practice in preparation for its first match against Atlanta United on February 10.
Austin Gwin, Nashville SC’s Director of Communications, said on Twitter “training will be closed to the general public. If, for whatever reason, that changes, we will let fans know.”
“Thanks to Ensworth, Nashville SC will begin its first season with facilities comparable to the top clubs in this country,” Nashville CEO Court Jeske said in a team press release. “Ensworth has been great to work with through the design and construction process, and the club looks forward to discovering further opportunities to support the school’s traditionally strong educational and athletic programs where we are able.”
“We are thrilled to be able to partner with the Nashville Soccer Club to host its new training facility at Ensworth,” said Ensworth Head of School David Braemer. “Having a professional soccer team in Nashville is a tremendous asset to our city, and we are excited to play a role in supporting the team.”
