Everything you need to know about matchday in Nashville

After a long offseason, Atlanta United is finally hitting the pitch for the first time in 2018, facing USL side Nashville SC in the club’s first ever match. The Five Stripes fans are expected to travel in force for the sell-out match, but whether you’re watching from the Music City or from your couch, we’ve got you covered. Here’s what you need to know:

Kickoff: The first ball of the 2018 season will be kicked at 3:00pm Central Time, so if you’re watching from the metro Atlanta area that would be 4pm. Gates open one hour before kickoff.

Stadium: The match is being held at First Tennessee Park on Gillam Way in downtown Nashville. Junior Gilliam Way was previously known as Jackson Street and some GPS maps may still list the ballpark at "401 Jackson St."

Ticketing: Be sure to print out your tickets! Unlike matches at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, mobile ticketing is not available for this match. Be sure to have a paper copy of your tickets, and if issues arise, visit the Nashville SC box office at the stadium. Tickets for the match are sold out.

Watch: For those who can’t make the trip to the Nashville, don’t miss a minute of the action. We will be streaming the game live on Facebook, YouTube and atlutd.com/live.
