Just months away from their MLS debut, Nashville SC recently took a fundamental step as a team with the announcement of the their first jersey sponsor, Renasant Bank. The four-year deal includes the bank’s logo on the team’s home and away jerseys for both the first team, as well as the academy. The new jersey is set to be unveiled prior to the start of the 2020 season with German international Hany Mukhtar and 22-year-old Costa Rican international Randall Leal to be some of the first players to wear the Renasant Bank jersey.

In addition to having the designation of Official Banking Partner, the partnership will include exclusive benefits for the bank’s members including the option of a dual-branded debit card. Both Renasant President & CEO Mitch Waycaster and Nashville SC CEO Ian Ayre agree that the two organizations’ aligned company values and strong community focus will make this partnership a good fit as they move into the future of the sport in the community of Nashville. Given both organizations commitment to the Nashville community, it is not surprising this deal is assured to have a strong community element. Until their own soccer-specific facility is completed on the Nashville fairgrounds, Nashville will play their first two seasons with this Renasant Bank jersey at Nissan Stadium.
