Nashville Metros soccer plays U.S. Air Force in Saturday benefit

According to a press release from the Nashville Metros soccer team, "[t]he Nashville Metros and the U.S. Air Force Men’s Soccer Team will face off at 2 p.m. on Saturday, January 15 at Ezell Park in a friendly match to raise money to help armed forces families in Tennessee who have lost loved ones in Afghanistan and Iraq."

"There will be no admission charge for the match but the Metros are suggesting a $5 per person donation at the gate. All proceeds from the match will go to Tennessee Marine Family, a cross-service grassroots organization that supports Tennessee’s Gold Star families (those who have lost a relative in the conflicts), those who have been wounded in the conflicts and personnel still on active duty in those nations."

The Metros recently started recruiting players from Nashville's Hispanic community. Those players may figure prominently in this game, because the Metros' college players will not be available for this match.
