NASHVILLE – Nashville Soccer Club returns to action on Wednesday ( 7:30 p.m. CT) as the Boys in Gold take on Eastern Conference foe D.C. United at Nissan Stadium.
The game will be played without fans as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Nashville SC enters the match riding a three-match unbeaten streak at Nissan Stadium after posting its highest offensive statistical output of the season in a 4-2 win over Atlanta United FC on Sept. 12.
Coming into its 12th league fixture, Nashville has amassed a 3W-3L-3D record and four shutouts since returning to Major League Soccer action on Aug. 12, with six of the nine matches taking place on the road.
Tori Penso will serve as the head official on Wednesday, becoming the first female to serve in that capacity for an MLS match since 2000. Penso will be the fourth woman to referee a match in MLS history, after Sandra Hunt accumulated the most matches as the head official with 11 games between 1998 through 2000 and was the most recent female head official.
