Nashville SC fans are now able to donate their unused United Soccer League match tickets to charity through the club.

The Tennessee-based franchise announced the new initiative yesterday (Monday) stating that tickets that are no longer wanted by the buyer can be donated to the club.

Nashville SC will then distribute the spare tickets to community groups with a charitable cause around the local area.

“From the beginning, one of our main initiatives at Nashville SC has been to use the sport of soccer to enrich the lives of all Nashvillians,” said Nashville SC general manager, community engagement and media, Chris Jones. “This programme will allow those in all corners of Music City to develop a love for soccer and for Nashville SC.”

The club made its debut in the USL in 2018, and plays its home games at the 8,500-capacity First Tennessee Park.

A Major League Soccer expansion franchise was awarded to Nashville in December 2017 and is expected to begin play in 2020 at the planned Nashville Fairgrounds 27,500-seater stadium.

“We are thrilled to provide a platform for our fans to give back to their neighbours,” said Nashville SC vice president of ticketing and corporate partnerships Michael Schetzel. “The incredible atmosphere at our games is something we look forward to sharing with more and more Nashvillians.”
