Nashville SC will soon begin building its training complex at Century Farms in Antioch.
The club announced Thursday it has identified 15 acres for its multi-million dollar complex on the Century Farms property, a mixed-use space of more than 300 acres in southeast Nashville. The complex will feature three soccer fields, as well as Nashville’s training facility that will house the first team and club staff.
There is no timetable confirmed on when construction will begin and when the club can transfer from its current home base at Currey Ingram Academy in Brentwood.
“The club’s practice facility sits alongside our new stadium and new youth academy as key assets of any professional soccer team,” Nashville CEO Ian Ayre said Thursday in a statement. “Creating a first-class facility where our players and staff can practice and work is a crucial part of the overall organization and a foundational element for the soccer footprint we have been building for the city.
“We took time to identify a site that worked with all of our short and long-term objectives for the club, as well as the Nashville community. We are confident that the Century Farms location and the broader South Nashville, Antioch community are an excellent fit for our plans.”
Nashville’s youth academy will remain at Currey Ingram. As for the Nashville senior team’s future office, the club says retail, office and entertainment use will surround the training facility on other Century Farms land.
“I am thrilled to have Nashville SC join our Antioch family!” Councilwoman Joy Styles said in the club statement. “It is hugely impactful that they see our diverse community as a perfect fit for the future and have chosen Century Farms for their practice facility location.
“This will benefit not only our growing business landscape, but also all of our passionate soccer fans. I am looking forward to their arrival and continuing to build our relationship with the community.”
