CFC Prepares For Tough Test Against Atlanta Silverbacks in U.S. Open Cup

Chattanooga-(WDEF) The CFC will need to be at their best in the next round of the U-S Open Cup.

The Chattanooga soccer team hosts the Atlanta Silverbacks on Wednesday night at 7:30 at Finley Stadium.
While the Silverbacks are not an MLS franchise, they’re still a pro team.
They beat the CFC 5-0 last year.
Said head coach Bill Elliott,"The league we play in is an amateur league. It’s the highest level of amateur soccer arguably in the country, but it’s an amateur league. The Silverbacks play in the NASL. Every player on their team is a year-round pro. It’s probably the equivalent of a Triple-A team playing a Single-A team or something like that. We’re definitely the underdogs."
 The winner of Wednesday’s match will head to New York next month to face the New York Red Bulls of the MSL.
