Nashville Football Club is a soccer organization based in Nashville, Tennessee. Founded in 2013, the team plays in the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL), a national amateur league at the fourth tier of the American Soccer Pyramid, in the Southeast Division.
The team was founded by two separate groups, Nashville Atlas FC, an ownership group, and a supporters group that intended to form a team as a fan owned group. Club president Chris Jones cited existing fan-owned clubs as inspiration for NFC's foundation, in particular English club F.C. United of Manchester. In February 2014, the two groups merged to form a single club for the 2014 NPSL season. The club has two teams currently participating in the Middle Tennessee Soccer Alliance, Nashville’s largest competitive adult league, and has already partnered with the TN State Soccer Association (TSSA), an organization with over 20,000 registered players in the middle Tennessee area alone. 
After a maiden season in which fourth place in the Southeastern Conference garned the club a playoff spot, Nashville was eliminated at the Conference Semifinal stage by Chattanooga FC, who finished top of the Conference and went on to be losing finalists in the Championship match. The club has ambitions of climbing the American Soccer Pyramid, with the reported target an entry into the Division II North American Soccer League by 2020.

Nashville's primary supporter groups are the NFC Roadies and the Yellow Hammer.
In addition, the three Tennessee clubs in the NPSL, Nashville FC, Knoxville Force, and Chattanooga FC compete for a rivalry trophy called the "Volunteer Shield". The Volunteer Shield is presented at the end of the season to the supporters of the club that took the most points in games against one another, with a medallion added to the trophy commemorating the year.
Colors and crest
|This section does not cite any references or sources. (March 2015)|
The club's colors where chosen from the Nashville city flag with the yellow and white stripe being used on the home jersey as well. The club's crest is a traditional circular design with local items in mind…for example, the three stars represent our great state; the divide represent the line of battles that took place here during the civil war; the fleur de lis is taken directly from the city seal & the overall crest sort of has the look of a record…representing "Music City."
