LIS Assists with Nashville Soccer Club Practice Facility
Only two years after their inaugural season, the Nashville Soccer Club is building a new practice facility at Century Farms in Antioch, Tenn.
The practice facility project began in August of last year and is scheduled to be completed by early 2023. The new practice arena will have three soccer fields, a health clinic, a maintenance building, and a training facility.
The 58,185 square-feet building will have other features such as locker rooms, weight rooms, media rooms, staff offices, lounges, and a hydrotherapy facility.
L.I. Smith & Associates (LIS), as a subcontractor to Messer Construction, has assisted the Nashville Soccer Club by surveying the 15-acre area located at Century Farms, providing construction layout for electrical services for the facility. The surveying team began to survey the area last fall and continues to be called to the site as needed.
The Nashville Soccer Club is the state’s first Major League Soccer (MLS) team. The club’s first match, held in 2020, was played in front of 59,069 people, which made it the highest attended soccer event in the state of Tennessee.
On May 1, 2022, GEODIS Park, the club’s official home, opened and held its first game. Now, a practice facility is to be added to the team’s repertoire.
The club held a ceremony in early October for breaking ground at the new facility.
