Men's Soccer set to welcome Nashville SC for preseason friendly

NASHVILLE – For the second straight year, Lipscomb men’s soccer will welcome the Nashville Soccer Club to campus for a preseason friendly on the turf at the Lipscomb Soccer Complex.

In the first announced friendly of the spring, the Bisons and Nashville SC will meet on February 27 at 5 p.m.

"Playing Nashville SC is a great opportunity for our guys to get a taste of playing at the next level," Lipscomb head coach Charles Morrow said. "It is a game that will stretch us in ways that hopefully we were not stretched in the fall.

"It is a great chance for us to grow and develop, and that is what the spring is all about."

Tickets for the match are on sale now and can be purchased online HERE or by calling the Lipscomb Ticket Office at (615) 966-4373. Admission for the event is $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 6-12. Anyone aged five and under will be admitted for FREE.

Nashville SC is fresh off a historic inaugural season in the United Soccer League (USL). After earning results in its final six games of the regular season, the club earned a berth into the USL Cup Playoffs where it eventually fell 1(6)-1(5) to top-seeded FC Cincinnati.

Lipscomb wrapped its 2018 season 10-10-1 overall and won both the ASUN Conference regular season and tournament titles. Despite the departure of five seniors and loads of production, the Bisons will be looking to build on their Sweet 16 run and second consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament.

Head coach Charles Morrow and his staff will announce the remainder of Lipscomb’s 2019 spring slate in the coming weeks.
