Five-time Oceania champions New Zealand today was named as Mexico's rival for the Oct. 8 match to be played at Nashville's Nissan Stadium. The announcement was made at a news conference featuring Nashville Mayor Megan Barry, where it was also revealed that Nissan will be the event's presenting sponsor. Kickoff time has been set for 5:00 p.m. CT for the internationally televised game.
The annual Mexican National Team U.S. Tour, sponsored by Nissan, will make its first ever visit to Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday, October 8, with "El Tricolor" taking on an opponent to be named later at Nissan Stadium, home of the NFL's Tennessee Titans. Ticket information for the match, as well as kickoff time, will be released at a later date.
Earlier this year, Nissan and the Tennessee Titans announced the formation of a 20-year, exclusive naming-rights partnership that rebrands Nashville's downtown stadium as Nissan Stadium. On Thursday, Nov. 12, the first, giant NISSAN marquee sign was raised on the stadium, calling even greater attention to Nissan’s partnership with the Titans and its presence in Middle Tennessee.
