Is Indy Eleven at Nashville SC Moving to Nissan Stadium?

If you goto Ticketmaster you can buy single game tickets to every Nashville SC home game expect one. Indy Eleven on July 27, 2019 is listed at First Tennessee Park like all the rest, but there is no active link. The tickets aren’t for sale. Now why would that be? I asked people in both the front office and ticket sales and didn’t get a reply. They certainly would be on sale if that is where the club was hoping to play the match. So there is something else in play. I was hopeful that the summer date might turn into a double header with the International Champions Cup. Just two years previous 56,232 fans watched a Tottenham Manchester City ICC match at Nissan Stadium. A record for the state. However, that is not happening. Likely for the same reason the Music City didn’t get an ICC match last year. According to Charlie Stillitano, USSF didn’t want two big matches close together. The USMNT played and beat Mexico 1-0 in September, 2018 in a friendly at Nissan Stadium. Tyler Adam’s first goal for the Yanks. Given that was a deal breaker in 2018 and that Nashville is hosting a Gold Cup semifinal on July 3, 2019 the ICC is out. So what is the club waiting for? Trying to determine if there would be enough demand to get close to the 20,000 that attended both Nissan Stadium matches last season? Nashville SC attendance is down this year and maybe they are worried how a crowd of under 10,000 would look? Time will tell as the club remains quite on why it is the only match where you can’t buy tickets.

UPDATE – As predicted, Nashville SC announced last week that the Indy Eleven match is in fact moving to Nissan. In addition the match versus North Carolina FC on October 12 will also be played at Nissan.
