NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Nashville Soccer Club’s 2021 season is just days away.
While they’re playing at Nissan Stadium for now, their own space is under construction.
On Thursday, the team gave a tour to show the progress of the construction.
By the time it’s scheduled to be finished next year, Nashville SC hopes it can be part of the return of major full-capacity events in Nashville.
“It’s probably been the most disappointing thing. We haven’t really be able to bring people here until now,” said Nashville Soccer Club CEO Ian Ayre. “As fans get to be seated in here, it will more and more brought to life.”
Arye gave updates on the first media tour of the Nashville SC stadium under construction.
He said the foundation and plumbing is done, the home team bench is taking shape and the sports lights, speakers and 30,000 seats are coming.
“Substantial completion will be in May 2022,” said Ayre. “As we get into 2022, it’s hard to predict the future, but I hope COVID’s behind us, and we’re back to watching live sports with full houses. That will be our big objective to fill this space for the 2022 season for everyone to enjoy why we started to build this in the first place.”
