Nashville will open the biggest soccer stadium in the U.S. and Canada as the sport surges in popularity.

The 30,000-seat stadium is set to debut when Nashville SC hosts the Philadelphia Union on May 1.

  • The stadium cost roughly $335 million to build.
  • On Thursday, the team announced a long-term stadium rights partnership with French logistics firm GEODIS, which has its North American headquarters in Brentwood, just outside of Nashville.
  • Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it is estimated to be worth $3 million to $4 million annually.

Last week, Charlotte FC set a new MLS attendance record at the team’s inaugural home game against the L.A. Galaxy. The 74,479 crowd bested the previous record of 73,019 set in Atlanta during the 2018 Cup match.

Miami Next?

Inter Miami owners David Beckham and Jorge and Jose Mas are looking to build a $1 billion complex for their team.

A city commission vote on whether to lease the Melreese golf course to the team owners for 99 years was postponed to allow for proper public notification.

The project plots out a 27,000-capacity stadium with a surrounding mall, hotel, and park.
