Nashville SC games can be heard in the same place they were last Summer:
NASHVILLE (January 17, 2019) – Nashville Soccer Club will have a bigger footprint on the radio in 2019. The club and ESPN 94.9 Game 2 in Nashville announced the sides have renewed their partnership for the upcoming season, as the station remains the official English radio home of Nashville SC.
“We are fortunate to have a radio partner in Cromwell Radio that is committed to the growth of soccer in Nashville,” said Nashville SC CEO Ian Ayre. “With expanding coverage of Nashville Soccer Club in 2019, we are confident that 102.5 The Game and 94.9 Game 2 will continue to provide our fans first class programming throughout the season.”
Beginning with Nashville’s game against New York City FC on February 22, ESPN 94.9 Game 2 will broadcast at least 24 Nashville SC games including 15-minute pregame and postgame shows, a 20% increase from 2018. Nashville SC content will feature on ESPN 102.5 The Game throughout the week and preliminary discussions around additional regular soccer programming are in the works.
“We are excited to extend our partnership with Nashville SC,” said Cromwell Radio market manager Jana Hampton. “Nashville is a great sports town and we’re excited to offer our listeners exposure to their favorite teams. Soccer is growing in Music City and expanding our coverage enhances that growth and delivers on our daily promise of being Nashville’s Best Sports Talk.”
Nashville will open its home schedule with the friendly against NYCFC of Major League Soccer on February 22 at First Tennessee Park. Season tickets are available for as low as $10 a game at NashvilleSC.com/seasontickets.
Not the most exciting announcement (I honestly would have guessed it was a multi-year deal from the outset), but the importance of a big local footprint shouldn’t be overlooked, either.
