Vanderbilt plans to continue playing home games on campus

NASHVILLE (AP) — Vanderbilt has opted against the idea of playing all its home football games at a proposed off-campus site that it would have shared with a potential Major League Soccer expansion franchise.

School officials announced Wednesday that "we are not moving Vanderbilt football off campus."

The Commodores play their home games at Vanderbilt Stadium, a 40,550-seat facility on campus.

Nashville is seeking an MLS expansion franchise. Vanderbilt athletic director David Williams said in August he'd be interested in exploring the possibility of playing some football and soccer games at the potential MLS team's proposed new stadium.

School officials said Wednesday they continue supporting Nashville's MLS bid and are "exploring the opportunity" to lease the proposed new soccer field for one or two Vanderbilt events per year.
