“This is a match up that we’ve all been waiting for.” said Sean McDaniel, GM of Chattanooga FC. “By showcasing the two premier amateur clubs in America we are demonstrating to soccer fans across the country that grass roots soccer teams and passionate, loyal fans are here to stay.”
Tickets are included as part of all season pass packages. Individual tickets are $10 in advance at chattanoogafc.com and $12 the day of the match.

“This is something we’ve wanted to give our fans for quite some time,” said Detroit City FC co-owner Sean Mann. “Not only will it be a match-up of two organizations that have redefined what an American soccer club can be, but it will also be a chance for some of the best soccer fans in the country to come together in the stands.”
Both clubs deserve credit for growing the beautiful game at a grass roots level. Matches like these will be sure to draw eyes from all over the country and all levels of the sport.
“We expect these matches will generate considerable buzz, both clubs are telling exciting stories in the soccer landscape” said Joe Barone, NPSL Chairman. “We are proud to showcase this event to all the supporters of the NPSL and bring further awareness to teams in our league.”
