October 13, 2018 - United Soccer League Championship (USL) - Nashville SC News Release

NASHVILLE - Nashville SC has clinched a spot in the 2018 USL Playoffs in its inaugural season. Sitting in seventh place ahead of tonight's match, Nashville is guaranteed to finish in the top eight in the Eastern Conference after Ottawa Fury's 2-0 loss to Charleston Battery this afternoon.
