Music City, Sports City. From sport clubs to professional teams, you’re sure to find a fun-loving, competitive community at your doorstep — and a team to cheer on year-round.

Three students walk together to a game in Nashville

Nashville is home to four professional sports teams: the Nashville Predators, the Tennessee Titans, the Nashville Sounds, and Nashville SC. Whether you’re a sports fanatic or casual spectator, you’ll feel the energy that the Nashville community brings to our teams. And you’ll feel the connection with nearly two million people in support of athletics that speak to a bigger truth: Nashville is a place that makes dreams a reality. 

Between the ticket giveaways from our Student Activities board and massive championship watch parties on campus, you’ll be in the thick of it. But in addition to Nashville’s four, you’ll have 17 more teams to cheer on: that’s how many NCAA Division 1 sports Lipscomb plays, consistently garnering national attention. Horns up!
