Bethel Sports Management students work World Cup qualifier in Nashville

MCKENZIE, Tenn. Sept. 9, 2021 – A group of Bethel University Sports Management students traveled to Nashville last week to volunteer at the United States versus Canada World Cup 2022 qualifying match at Nissan Stadium.

The match was the first on home turf for the U.S. Men’s National Team in this cycle of qualifying. The team of six students worked hospitality at the event.

“Working at Nissan Stadium for the first time was a great experience for me. It’s always a great time getting to see how everything is actually done and then getting to participate and help out with whatever you can,” said Jeffrey Lee, a junior from Arlington, Tennessee.

This is the latest trip to be led by Program Coordinator and Assistant Professor of Sports Management Dr. Josh Greer. Providing students in the program with real-world experiences and making new connections is integral to a student’s success and a goal of the program.

“We also ran into a Bethel University alumnus that works for the Nashville Soccer Club. He invited us to a match,” Greer said.

Greer led a group in February to volunteer at Super Bowl 55 in Tampa, Florida.

“This experience was a blessing. I’m so grateful for Greer paving the way and doing everything he can to get us hands-on experience working these events on the biggest stages of sports,” said Matthew Ellis, a junior from Huntingdon, Tennessee.
