Nashville SC Clinches Playoffs in Inaugural Season
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.
Nashville SC will still look to secure points tonight to fight for playoff seeding. Although the top four seeds are locked in, Nashville will be jockeying with several other teams to secure the fifth through eighth seeds. A win tonight could see SC potentially finish as high as fifth place. With several games left to be played with playoff implications tonight and tomorrow, there are still many potential outcomes from fifth to eighth.
The USL Playoffs will begin Saturday, October 20 with the first-round games being held at the top four seeds home stadiums.
Nashville SC will be in action tonight for its final 2018 regular season match at First Tennessee Park to take on conference leading FC Cincinnati. Tonight's match promises to be an exciting event that you don't want to miss. Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. CST and tickets are still available.
