Now that Gary Smith has watched the replay of the Atlanta United friendly a couple times, he likes his team’s performance even more than he did immediately after the match.
Nashville Soccer Club has announced it will play two matches at Nissan Stadium — its USL home opener on March 24 and a meeting with FC Cincinnati on July 7.
In a press release, the team cited high ticket demand as the reason for the decision to play the home opener at the Tennessee Titans’ venue. Later Monday, the team announced the location of the Cincy match in an email to season ticket holders.
In the email, the team said season tickets and parking passes will transfer. The email said:
“Season Ticket Members will be contacted with their exact seat location for Nissan Stadium in the coming weeks. As a reminder, the games at Nissan Stadium are included in your season ticket package which you already purchased. Parking passes purchased from Nashville SC will transfer to Nissan Stadium as well.”
Golden Goal first reported the opening match’s new location after a promotion for the match appeared on the broadcast of Saturday’s match between Nashville SC and Atlanta United.
