We asked our fans to submit messages of encouragement to our players ahead of the club’s first-ever playoff match this Friday. We displayed the messages outside the locker room ahead of tonight's match for players to read as they entered the stadium, and you can read them below, too.
Be sure to catch the match live on ESPN 2 starting at 8 p.m. CT on Friday, Nov. 20. Fans can also listen in on ESPN 94.9, 102.5 The Game or El Jefe.
This is your time lads. Go get it.
Give 'em hell, blue and gold!
Hey - it'd be pretty cool if you won
Give em hell boys!
Every MLS fan doubted you guys when you came into the league, but y'all have fought and proved you belong. Go out there and show the world who this team is and how you will never give up for the full 90 minutes. Let's get this cup!
Let's get that W boys!!!!!

INTER MIAMI HAS NOTHING AGAINST YA'LL. YA'LL TEACH THEM WHAT TENNESSEE IS ABOUT.
Great opening act guys! Let's send Inter back to Fort Lauderdale with a big L!! NGUOY!!!
Watching the growth and development of this team (and some players from the past years in Nashville) and going from good individual players to one unit of operation as a team has been great and I’m not ready for this season to end and this is your opportunity to be great, take it.
Zac and Ali W.
There is no one else we'd rather cheer on! You guys make us proud to be Nashville fans. Keep it up and let's get that win! Everyone N!

Guys, thank you for fighting hard this year. I run a non-profit youth ministry called Franktown Open Hearts and you all have given both kids and parents hope during these trying times. The way you all have played, has been truly amazing. So proud of you all. Management team, thank you for truly building a team of hard workers from around the globe . They truly embody the game as well as represent this community very well. Play hard, play fast, play together. We are all N with you. Go Gold!
The whole city is behind you, cheering you on to the big win! We'll never give up on you!
You guys got this! We got your back whatever the outcome is. Vamos Nashville!!
Thanks for giving it your all during this trying year. We love y'all!
Like Derek Jeter said, "There may be people that have more talent than you, but there's no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do." You guys got this !! And many of you have a lot of talent so let’s work hard this Friday at playoffs
At the beginning of the season, not a single person believed in this club, not a single person could have ever predicted us making it to the playoffs, but we sure showed them why you never sleep on Nashville. They will think the same thing now, they don't think we are qualified enough to take on these playoff teams, guess we got to prove them wrong again and show them why you don't sleep on the boys in gold!!!
Thank you for giving this city something to be happy about in a tough year! Keep working hard, good luck!!

Nashville SC, thank you so much for making 2020 a year to remember for the right reasons. Going to the games and seeing how much you all grind and pour your hearts out for the club is so inspiring. Seeing you all commit to success in your profession inspires me to work harder in mine. Life is never easy but the toughest rise to the occasion. I have no doubt the better, tougher team will win on Friday. COYBIG!

They said Nashville was not a soccer town. We did not deserve an MLS team. We would not support them enough. As usual, Nashville rises. To the occasion, to the challenge, to the playoffs. Kill it boys. We've got you. No matter what, you have made this town, this club, this fan PROUD. #COYBIG #NGUOY
