Chattanooga Football Club announced on Thursday its annual Jersey Reveal that will take place Friday, May 3, at 6:30 p.m. at Miller Plaza to help kick off the opening night of Chattanooga’s long-standing concert series, Nightfall. The event is free and all are encouraged to attend. Entering its 32nd year, Nightfall is consistently voted one of Chattanooga’s favorite events.
“Our jersey reveal is always a much-anticipated event,” said Paul Rustand, brand director and board member, Chattanooga FC.
“It’s the first chance for our supporters to get their hands on the new jerseys for the season, and a great opportunity to come together and celebrate our love of the city and the team.”
Chattanooga FC supporters will be able to pick up their season pass jerseys at the event, and all in attendance will get a chance to learn more about the club and our historic supporter ownership campaign, which closes on June 1st.
The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. and conclude just before Chattanooga-based band Oweda goes on at 7 p.m.
“We love tying into CFC and what they bring to the community,” said Carla Pritchard, owner of Chattanooga Presents, which produces Nightfall. “Beyond CFC’s Jersey Reveal on the night of our kickoff, we look forward to having their inflatable soccer field on certain nights throughout the season to add animation to the Miller Park lawn during the Nightfall shows.”
“Nightfall is a spectacular example of what is great about our community: people from all walks of life coming together in the heart of the city,” said Sheldon Grizzle, president, Chattanooga FC. “Our club is dedicated to doing the same thing through the beautiful game of soccer, so the partnership made perfect sense.”
The jersey reveal will take place just one day before Chattanooga FC welcomes Bugeaters FC of Nebraska to Finley Stadium on Saturday, May 4, at 7:30 p.m., which will also be “Star Wars” night, the first time the club has had a theme night at a game.
