CFC Set to Host MLS Team Atlanta United on Saturday at Finley Stadium
Chattanooga-(WDEF) The CFC is getting an early call to arms.
Normally our amateur soccer team doesn’t assemble until late spring.
But they had to come together this week because they’re hosting the new MLS team from Atlanta in a ‘Friendly at Finley’.
The match is set for three o’clock on Saturday.
CFC general manger Sean McDaniel said Atlanta United wanted to face another MLS franchise here in Chattanooga, but when that failed to develop, Atlanta offered to play the CFC.
Said McDaniel:”This is a historic match on two accounts. It’s Atlanta United’s fist match ever, and it’s Chattanooga Football Club’s first time ever playing a Major League Soccer team. So we have two big firsts coming up right here in Chattanooga, and we expect a very big crowd and very good weather to have a great afternoon of soccer.”
