Nashville MLS Stadium

Description: Nashville MLS Stadium
The first ever football-specific stadium in Nashville, Tennessee is expected to be built in the southern fairgrounds area of the city. Its double-tiered stands were designed to hold 30,000 people with potential for expansion in the south, should such need arise.
Capacity of that level would make it one of the bigger stadia of MLS, where most stadiums are in the 20,000+ size. However, the size in Nashville is one way to convince Vanderbilt University football to play any games at the fairgrounds. With 30,000 the university team would hold a couple games per season, while reaching 35,000 could open the chance for full-time tenancy.
This HOK Architects vision is preliminary and became part of Nashville's MLS expansion bid. The stadium is most likely to be built in a public-private partnership, which would see all of the fairgrounds upgraded and renovated.
USA: Could Nashville have the best MLS stadium?
Simply put, the answer is... probably no. But if you ask Mark Wilf, minority owner of Nashville SC, he has a different opinion. No details as to what he bases it on, though.

Four cities and four stadium plans are left in the fight for a place in MLS. Who will join the league in 2020? We'll know on December 6. Remaining bidders will have to try again.
New design: If MLS comes to Music City...
Football (we mean soccer) and football (the other one) could be played here at Nashville's fairgrounds if the city is awarded an MLS franchise. To get there they've released this stadium concept.
