Chattanooga Red Wolves SC To Build Soccer-Specific Stadium For 2020 Season

Thursday, October 18, 2018

Chattanooga Red Wolves Soccer Club is building a state-of-the-art, soccer-specific facility, where the team will host home games beginning in 2020. For its inaugural season, the club will play at Chattanooga Christian School’s David Stanton Field in 2019.

 

David Stanton Field seats 3,500, and the club plans to install additional temporary seating allowing up to approximately 5,000 fans at each game.

The seating capacity reflects an intimate atmosphere that will more accurately mirror the fans’ future experience in the new stadium.

 

“Building our own soccer-specific stadium allows us to create an atmosphere true to our fans, team and the sport that can’t be replicated elsewhere,” said team owner Bob Martino. “Making Chattanooga a better place to live, work and play through creating a family oriented soccer experience is a priority for us. As I said when I first announced the team, I am personally and professionally committed to Chattanooga. This stadium will have an enormous economic impact around the region.”

 

The new planned stadium will be a first-class soccer facility designed to include skyboxes, a fan zone, several dining options, a merchandise store and hospitality areas. Martino is considering developing retail stores, commercial buildings and housing surrounding the stadium, which will produce additional economic prosperity for the area.

 

In the meantime, Chattanooga Red Wolves SC is gearing up to debut in USL League One next year at its temporary location, which will provide an essential experience for the club. Additional amenities are being developed for the site during its temporary use including hospitality with food trucks and youth area with games. 

 

“Chattanooga Christian School has outstanding athletic facilities including a brand new weight room,” said Sean McDaniel, president and general manager of Chattanooga Red Wolves SC. “We are grateful for the school and President Chad Dirkse allowing us to use their home field while our stadium is being built.”

 

In looking at the upcoming year, CCS and the team determined use of the stadium is compatible with other scheduled school functions.

 

“Our school has a strong soccer program we are very proud of,” said Chattanooga Christian School President Chad Dirkse. “We believe this partnership will deepen the soccer roots at our school and in our community.”

Chattanooga's Shooting Epidemic

These shootings continue and something has to be done to try and stop them whether they are domestic, robbery or gang related.

This 21 age requirement would not include ammunition ... (click for more)
