Nashville TN, Nov. 30, 2013 – Nashville FC, a new member owned organization, announced today that it has chosen Admiral® to be the club’s official team uniform supplier for its inaugural 2014 season. They will be applying in the coming months to play in the Southeast Conference of the NPSL, the fourth tier of US soccer and one of the largest leagues in the United States.

We wanted to provide our players, members and fans with a unique custom kit, which Admiral is making and we wanted to work with an established soccer brand.” said Chris Jones, President of Nashville FC. “Admiral is going to manage our online store too, allowing us to sell merchandise but focus on developing the team.” Nashville FC will unveil the new Admiral kits prior to the 2014 season, which kicks off in May.
