MLS in Music City


Nashville was one of 12 cities with ownership groups vying for four possible expansion clubs, but on December 20, 2017 Major League Soccer announced that the Music City would be the first to be awarded a new team. CAA ICON provided Feasibility and Planning services, including a Project Development Plan, prior to the expansion award and Project Management services related to the programming, development, design, and construction of the stadium.

Local Influence

GEODIS Park is highly multi-functional, serving as the home for Nashville SC with the versatility to accommodate other premier events. The seating capacity of 30,500 for soccer allows the MLS to have a destination stadium in one of the nation’s most vibrant cities to host larger events and matches. The stadium design focused on encompassing the true spirit of Nashville in its aesthetic, materials, and function. While the facility is state-of-the-art, it also blends seamlessly within the historic architecture of the area and meshes with the fabric of the city and surrounding neighborhoods.
