Nashville SC Introduces Official Team Mascot, Tempo the Coyote

January 13, 2021 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - Nashville SC News Release

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Nashville Soccer Club introduced today the team's official mascot, Tempo the Coyote, paying homage to the canine that found its way into the Music City Center two years ago today.

It was on Jan. 13, 2019 that a coyote roamed through the streets of Nashville and ultimately found its way into an exhibit hall at the Music City Center. The building's security team secured the mischievous animal into a bathroom where Metro Nashville Police Department Officer Brenna Hosey was able to remove him safely.

For the past two years the coyote has continued to wander the streets of Nashville in search of a permanent home. Just a few months ago, construction site workers at the Nashville SC Stadium in the Nashville Fairgrounds noticed him dashing across the site of the club's new home. Almost immediately, he became a regular visitor, and ultimately decided to make the Nashville SC Stadium his permanent home.

As the coyote continued to appear and settle into his new place, site workers watched in amazement at the pace and overall spirit of the creature, who the crew decided to name Tempo the Coyote.

Tempo the Coyote will make his Nashville SC debut as the official team mascot this season by taking an active role in embracing the Nashville SC community with initiatives across the Middle Tennessee region. He will join fellow mascots Gnash from the Nashville Predators, T-Rac from the Tennessee Titans and Booster from the Nashville Sounds in Music City.

Be sure to follow Tempo the Coyote's adventures with Nashville SC by visiting his website and social channels on Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok, as well as the club's website, and social channels on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
