Trust hosts meeting with team ownership

NASHVILLE — For the second time since its formation, the Nashville Soccer Supporters Trust hosted a forum for the fans of Nashville Soccer Club to communicate with team ownership and management about issues regarding both the current team and the future MLS club.

The meeting took place earlier this week in Nashville, and the club was represented by team owners John Ingram and Chris Redhage as well as Nashville SC CEO Court Jeske and both Mary Cavarra and Devin Schultz of Ingram Industries.

Following a presentation from Jeske regarding the various business successes of NSC this season, the floor was opened up for team ownership and management to answer questions from members of the Supporters Trust as well as from select members of NSC’s recognized supporters groups: The Roadies, The Assembly, Music City Supporters and the Eastern Front.

Among the many takeaways from the meeting, the ownership team addressed future charitable initiatives, outreach efforts within the Nashville community and the ongoing progress with the planned MLS stadium at the Nashville Fairgrounds, including the news earlier this week that Populous has been selected to design the stadium.

The club also communicated its excitement about the growth of Nashville soccer over the past six months, including a record-breaking total of season ticket sales, the push for a record-breaking day against Cincinnati on July 7 and the desire to continue building this movement as the city prepares for its MLS kickoff, which is tentatively scheduled for 2020.
