Tennessee Titans star running back Derrick Henry is now an owner of the Nashville Soccer Club.

The club is set to open its new home (GEODIS Park) in five days.

Henry sees this opportunity as a dream come true, per a press release on the official website.

"As a kid growing up in Florida, I imagined being a professional sports owner and the opportunity to do that with a Major League Soccer club is truly a dream come true,” Henry said. "My investment in Nashville SC is way more than financial, it’s truly an investment in the city of Nashville. The chance to be part of a club like Nashville SC, especially after seeing what they are accomplishing in the community, was an opportunity I did not want to miss.”

The fans are excited for Henry to own a stake in the team.

Nashville's first game will be against Philadelphia on May 1.
