Chattanooga FC, Atlanta Silverbacks Move Wednesday Match From Dalton To Chattanooga Christian

Saturday, June 23, 2018
Chattanooga FC and Atlanta Silverbacks agreed earlier today to move their match next Wednesday, initially scheduled to take place in Dalton, Ga.,, to Chattanooga. The match will take place at 7:30 p.
 at Chattanooga Christian School, and will still be considered a home match for Atlanta. 

“It’s really a best case scenario for both teams,” said Tim Kelly, chairman of the board, Chattanooga FC. “Atlanta had some conflicts with their stadium, and this allows them to get some revenue that they wouldn’t otherwise have gotten. For us, it gives fans an extra shot of soccer that they might not have expected.” 

Tickets are $10 and are available NOW at Season passes and general admission tickets will not be valid as this is a home match for Atlanta. Supporters for both sides are encouraged to purchase tickets NOW as seating is extremely limited and the match is expected to sell out quickly. 

Chattanooga Christian’s stadium holds a maximum seating of around 3,500, including the grass berm that fans are welcome to use. 

“I'm glad we were able to provide a venue that works for both teams,” said Bill Elliott, Chattanooga FC Head Coach. “We realize this is still considered Atlanta's home match and they are fighting for points. Regardless of where the game actually is, we expect this to be a very competitive match.”
