Description: GEODIS Park
The stadium for the new MLS team, Nashville SC (the team joined the league in 2020), is being built near the Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway on the site of the former fairgrounds, where the annual state fair was held until 2019.
The construction of a new, soccer-specific stadium is a key part of the Nashville team's bid to join the Major League Soccer. Funding for the construction was secured through a partnership between a group of local businessmen and local authorities. Before the arena opens, the team will play at Nissan Stadium.
The facility will have roofed, two-level stands with a capacity of 30,000 spectators, which will surround the pitch from all sides. The construction of the stands will be based on a steel skeleton covered with concrete steps. The western stand will also provide space for business fans. The stadium will be the largest soccer-specific arena in the United States.
Construction began with the demolition of the fairgrounds facilities in March 2020. The Mortenson/Messer consortium is the main contractor for the facility, with a construction cost of $335 million. Construction is progressing according to schedule and the stadium is planned to open on May 1, 2022 with a home match against the Philadelphia Union. Transport company GEODIS became the title sponsor of the venue in March 2022.
USA: The largest soccer stadium in the USA inaugurated!
It was a great celebration of soccer and the entire state of Tennessee. The first MLS game ever was played at GEODIS Park in Nashville, with over 30,000 spectators sitting in the stands. This is an all-time attendance record in the United States when considering soccer-specific venues.
USA: Countdown in Nashville
Less than two months remain until the opening of a new stadium in Nashville. It is expected to be the largest soccer-specific venue in the US. On 1 May it will be filled with 30,000 fans of the Nashville SC club during the match against Philadelphia Union.
