NASHVILLE (Nov. 21, 2017) – Nashville SC will look sharp in its inaugural season in the USL. In a major announcement, the club unveiled its dark jersey and jersey front partner.
Nissan will adorn the front of the Under Armour jerseys after agreeing to a multiyear partnership with Nashville SC. The company has strong ties to Middle Tennessee with its North American headquarters in Franklin, its vehicle and battery assembly plant in Smyrna and its powertrain plant in Decherd.
“We are proud to have Nissan, a pillar of the Middle Tennessee community, as our flagship jersey sponsor,” Michael Schetzel, vice president of ticketing and corporate partnerships for Nashville SC. “Nissan and Nashville SC represent what makes Tennessee special, such as commitment to community, diversity and entrepreneurial spirit. Nissan’s reputation as an innovative, global brand is one we aspire to build at this club. Partnering with such a well-respected company as Nissan is another affirmation of the significance Nashville SC has in this community.”
Nashville SC is proud to be part of Nissan’s global soccer portfolio, which includes partnerships with the UEFA Champions League, the English Premier League’s Manchester City, and the Mexican National Team’s U.S. Tour.
Jeremy Tucker, the vice president of marketing communications and media, Nissan North America, said today, “Soccer is truly the World’s Game with a very loyal following – unifying communities and erasing borders. It’s exciting to share our support and pride with our community, our customers in Tennessee, and those around the world who are passionate fans of the game. Like Nashville SC, Nissan is a close-knit team continually striving to be the best – and we are proud to call Tennessee home.”
The navy blue and white Under Armour jersey represents one of two jerseys the club will don during the 2018 season. The other jersey design, a gold and white option, will be selected by the fans via a vote on Nashville SC’s website. Voting will close on Dec. 8.
