Q: How did the idea of TSC Sumner come about?
A: During the break in play caused by COVID-19, TSC leadership engaged in dialogue with a new club in the Sumner County area called Nashville Players Academy (NPA). It quickly became apparent that, just like in our merger with Nashville FC and Murfreesboro FC, our philosophy aligned with what NPA was hoping to create. We always believe that collaboration will achieve more and will provide better opportunities for players, and with that the decision to unite and create TSC Sumner was made.

Q: Will players who want to play in Sumner County be forced to travel to Williamson to play?
A: TSC offers four locations for all players, TSC Murfreesboro, TSC Nashville, TSC Williamson, and now TSC Sumner. Players can tryout in any and all TSC locations. As a part of the TSC Team structure, ECNL and Nike teams will stay in the TSC Williamson. You can learn more about the TSC Team Structure and Player Development Pathway by clicking here.
