Nashville is known as the Music City, but its sports scene isn’t all that bad either. And 2021 will be no exception. Here are four things for Nashville sports fans to look forward to in the new year.
The Titans in the Playoffs
That’s right. Ryan Tannehill, Derrick Henry, and the Tennessee Titans are headed to the NFL playoffs. Remember how fun that was last year? It could be another deep playoff run for the Titans in 2021, though getting past the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC won’t be easy.
The Predators’ Return to the Ice
The Nashville Predators have been one of the more exciting teams in the NHL in recent years, making the playoffs in six straight seasons. The Predators shook up their roster in the offseason in hopes of contending once again in the 2021 season, which begins in mid-January.
The Music City Grand Prix
The IndyCar Series comes to town this summer for the Music City Grand Prix. Downtown Nashville will transform into a temporary grand prix circuit for this fast-paced race. Being the lively city that it is, Nashville is making a party out of it. The three-day festival, slated for Aug. 6-8, will feature live music, “chef-curated food experiences,” and more.
Nashville SC’s 2nd Season
Nashville SC burst onto the Major League Soccer scene as an expansion franchise in 2020. Get ready for their encore in 2021. The team finished its inaugural season, which was interrupted by COVID-19, with an impressive 8-7-8 record. It’ll be exciting to see what awaits in the 2021 season, which MLS hopes to kick off in March.
