Of the nine matches announced, four are against teams in the MLS Western Conference and six are against teams currently in playoff position.

Notably, the remaining schedule will see fans return to Nissan Stadium for the first time since February 29. Up to 10% capacity will be allowed for the match against Minnesota on October 6, with that number increasing to 15% for the remaining matches in October.

MLS has also expanded the postseason for 2020. Ten teams from the Eastern Conference will qualify, with sides seeded 7-10 competing in a play-in round to determine who will advance to the full playoff bracket. In the West, eight teams will qualify directly to round one.

MLS will announce the playoff schedule and broadcast details at a later date. After 11 matches played, Nashville SC are currently in ninth place, with a game in hand on nearly every side in the conference. They’ll take on 13th-placed DC United tomorrow night at Nissan Stadium.

  1. Kinda hard to get a truly accurate reading on teams since it’s mainly been the regional games, but having to play a few of the top teams in the west (and Dallas one more extra time as well) is gonna be tough. Still wish we could’ve gotten a game against Cincy though since they’re basically the second closest team to us.

    1. Totally agree. 2020 is just weird. I’m hoping 2021 will be more of a normal MLS schedule – that should be a much more accurate measurement of how good Nashville actually is.
