More than 9,000 fans were on hand on Saturday to see Nashville SC kick off its inaugural United Soccer League season with a preseason friendly against Atlanta United.

A lot of rain created a sloppy field and also dropped temperatures for the sellout crowd at First Tennessee Park. In the end, the visitors from Atlanta scored three goals in the second half to take a 3-1 win. Click here to read Pro Soccer USA’s recap of the game from Atlanta contributor Mitchell Northam.

It was the first time since 2001 that Atlanta and Nashville met — and a precursor of things to come with Nashville being awarded a MLS expansion team. The league’s southern region will eventually include Atlanta, Nashville, Orlando and Miami.
