Nashville was appealing to Ayre in 2018 when he decided to take over as CEO because of the opportunities in a new club.

“This is a fantastic organization that is going places. Ayre said. “And to be a part of that. As a bonus… to get the opportunity to build an entire team from the ground up. It’s not unique, but quite outstanding as an opportunity for someone who works in the industry.”

Ayre along with other members of Nashville SC will participate in a Nashville SC panel where you can learn more about the MLS Club’s expansion and ask any questions you might have.
