NASHVILLE, TN – Nashville SC officially clinched the 2023 Southern Championship Belt on Wednesday night. Atlanta United’s 1-1 draw with DC United wrapped up this season’s slate of games in consideration for the fan-sponsored trophy, giving Nashville their second consecutive win.
About the Southern Championship Belt
The Southern Championship Belt includes Nashville SC, Atlanta United, DC United and Charlotte FC. It’s organized by Supporters groups MixTape 615 (Nashville), Footie Mob (Atlanta), Rose Room Collective (DC) and Mint City Collective (Charlotte).
The standings are determined by total points in head-to-head matches between the four teams. Since Nashville were in the Western Conference in 2022, the winner was determined by total points in MLS that season.
The Belt is handed to the winning supporters at the Independent Supporters Council before the start of the season, with the winners holding it for the next MLS season.
