Chattanooga Red Wolves Host Atlanta United 2 Saturday at 1 p.m.

Thursday, February 21, 2019

 Chattanooga Red Wolves SC opens home preseason play Saturday, Feb. 23 against USL Championship side Atlanta United 2, operated by 2018 MLS Cup Champions Atlanta United. Kick off time for the match is set for 1 p.m. at Chattanooga Christian School’s David Stanton Field.

According to Chattanooga Red Wolves SC Head Coach and Technical Director Tim Hankinson, this match will be a big test for the USL League One team.

“Saturday’s match will enable us to see the progress we’ve made since last Wednesday’s matchup against Birmingham Legion FC and will be a great test to see how we continue to develop as a unit throughout this first stretch of preseason training,” said Hankinson.

Saturday’s match marks the end of the team’s third week of preseason training, which began on Feb. 1. Defender Andrew Moullin signed with Chattanooga Red Wolves SC last month ahead of the club’s League One debut after spending the 2018 season with Atlanta United 2. While there, he appeared in 24 matches, totaling 1,963 minutes played. According to Moullin, there’s an excitement that stems from facing teams in higher divisions.

“The guys are ready to get back on the field and play in a game day atmosphere,” said Moullin. “Last week’s closed scrimmage against Legion FC was our first time performing together and it definitely showed us what we need to work on and gaps we need to fill. Playing against clubs in higher divisions is always vital to the growth of a team, and I think Saturday’s match will be an exciting one to watch.” 

Gates open at 12 p.m. on Saturday.  Season Ticket Holders receive free admission into the match. General admission tickets are now available for $10. Onsite parking will be available for $5 and will open at 11:30 a.m. For tickets, visit www.chattredwolves.com/tickets.

The Red Wolves will make their debut in USL League One play on March 30, 2019 as the club travels to Dallas, Texas to face North Texas SC, a League One club operated by MLS side FC Dallas. The Red Wolves will face Forward Madison FC for the club’s inaugural opening night the following week on April 6. Kickoff is 7 p.m. local time.
