CFC Remains Committed to Soccer Next Year in Chattanooga
A USL D3 pro soccer team will be coming to Chattanooga next season, and it looks like they will be competing with the existing NPSL team in town, the Chattanooga FC. The CFC released a statement on Wednesday affirming their commitment to soccer in the Scenic City.
CHATTANOOGA, TN (August 1, 2018)- We are pleased that Chattanooga FC’s success has drawn national attention to our city, and we remain committed to keeping Chattanooga FC as Chattanooga’s homegrown team. Our club was founded for Chattanoogans by Chattanoogans, and, after ten years, we are dedicated to growing Chattanooga FC in a fiscally responsible manner from the grassroots up.
Professional soccer has eyed our incredible support in Chattanooga and now wants to enter our market. Chattanooga FC has grown organically, built a solid fan base, introduced the sport to kids and adults alike, helped launch a women’s team and hosted national teams from around the world. Chattanooga FC embodies the “Chattanooga Way” where we bring the community together who share our values to make the city a better place.
Our board is already working on plans for the 2019 season and we look forward to strengthening our bonds throughout the community during the off season.
