Chattanooga FC Hosts Atlanta SC Wednesday

Monday, June 10, 2019

Chattanooga FC, coming off a 4-0 win over Inter Nashville FC, needs to recover quickly as Atlanta SC will descend upon Finley Stadium this Wednesday.

“Our guys responded to last week’s match in basically every phase of play” said Bill Elliott, Head Coach and General Manager, Chattanooga FC. “We’re glad to get this win under our belt because the games will come hot and heavy over the next three weeks and we have to keep focused.”

Atlanta SC enters the NPSL as a new club this year and have a 1-2-1 record in league play thus far. The Southeast conference is as competitive as it’s ever been, so fans are sure to get a good match on Wednesday. 

“We were really impressed with how our guys took care of business on Saturday, and we’ll need to keep that momentum up on Wednesday” said Sheldon Grizzle, President, Chattanooga FC. “Every match counts to our standings from here on out, so we need to perform again.”

Earlier today, the club unveiled the limited release Third Alternate “Owners Edition” Jersey. The new kit will include the names of all 3,294 club owners, most coming from the recent Supporter Ownership Campaign. The white jersey displays every shareholder’s name in gray, with a white “X” centered over the Chattanooga FC badge. Fans can pre-order the new alternate jersey NOW at chattanoogafc.com, with deliveries expected in September. The club will wear the kits as part of the NPSL Founder’s Cup, which kicks off in August.
