NASHVILLE, TN (CelebrityAccess) — A prospective ownership group has unveiled their plans for a new professional soccer stadium that they hope to bring to Nashville.
According to the Nashville Tennessean, Nashville Soccer Club Holdings, led by John Ingram presented conceptual plans for the proposed MLS stadium to the Nashville's Metro Council on Monday night but the team has yet to finalize key details such as the estimated cost of the project, or the source of its funding.
The plans call for the 30,000-capacity, 500,000 square-foot facility to be built at the Fairgrounds Nashville site in the Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood, the Tennessean said.
"Having a stadium that is approved by MLS is an absolutely essential part of ultimately being successful. We've tried to put together something that we believe represents a great partnership between our MLS-in-Nashville group and the city," Ingram told City Council members on Monday, per the Tennessean.
Ingram's consortium is one of 12 groups vying to win a new Major League Soccer franchise. The league has indicated that a soccer-specific venue would be a key component of a successful bid.
