NASHVILLE (Nov. 18, 2021) – Nashville Soccer Club announced today that the club has reached a long-term partnership deal with Hyundai moving into the 2022 campaign. With the agreement, Hyundai joins an exclusive group of Nashville SC founding partners and will serve as Nashville SC’s official automotive partner.
“Hyundai has played such an important role in Nashville SC’s success since our MLS launch last season and it will be fitting to have Hyundai on our sleeve when we open our new home next spring.” – Will Alexander, Chief Revenue Officer of Nashville SC
Nashville SC and Hyundai have maintained their highly successful partnership since the club’s inaugural MLS season in 2020 and will continue towards 2022 and beyond with the arrival of Nashville SC Stadium.
A key element in this partnership is the official jersey sleeve patch on Nashville SC home and away jerseys featuring the Hyundai logo. Nashville SC is one of a handful of teams in MLS to have a jersey sleeve partner.
Hyundai’s logo has been on Nashville SC’s jersey sleeve in both the 2020 and 2021 seasons on an interim basis and now the automaker will be the club’s permanent sleeve partner.
Hyundai will have permanent signage in the stadium bowl, sponsored gates on the east side of the stadium and be the presenting partner of Nashville SC’s Hero of the Match, which celebrates veterans and community leaders in Nashville.
“Hyundai and the Nashville Hyundai dealers are excited to be a founding partner of the Nashville Soccer Club. The growth and community engagement NSC has brought to our area echos our own history and makes this a perfect partnership, which we look forward to continuing for many years to come. Hyundai is proud to have the prominent jersey sleeve patch position and look forward to the first match at the new stadium when our permanent signage will be unveiled.” – Paine Bone, President, Nashville Hyundai Dealers
