Nissan is a natural fit for Nashville SC

Nashville SC, which will play its first season in the USL in 2018, has landed Nissan as the jersey sponsor.

Nashville SC, whose ownership group hopes to snag an MLS expansion team, unveiled its Under Armour jersey with the car maker on it.

Nissan has strong ties to Tennessee. Its North American headquarters are located in Franklin, its vehicle and battery assembly plant is in Smyrna -- both about half an hour away from Nashville -- and its power-train plant is in Decherd, an hour and a half away.

Nissan has naming rights to the NFL Titans' football stadium and is a major sponsor at Bridgestone Arena, where the NHL Predators play.

Nashville SC vice president of ticketing and corporate partnerships Michael Schetzel: “We are proud to have Nissan, a pillar of the Middle Tennessee community, as our flagship jersey sponsor. Nissan and Nashville SC represent what makes Tennessee special, such as commitment to community, diversity and entrepreneurial spirit."
