Chattanooga FC Playoff Run Starts Friday

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

The stage is set, and all eyes will be on the Scenic Soccer City this weekend as the NPSL Southeast Conference playoffs begin on Friday at Finley Stadium. The first round of the four team playoff will be held on Friday with Greenville FC and Asheville City SC facing off in the first semifinal match at 4:30 p.m.

The second semifinal match will feature Chattanooga FC against Inter Nashville FC at 7:30 p.m. The NPSL Southeast Conference championship match will be held Saturday, July 13, at 7:30 p.m. in Finley Stadium.

 

“There's really nothing like a playoff match at Finley. We've had some truly classic moments over the years here,” said Sheldon Grizzle, president, Chattanooga FC. “This is a special team we’ve put together this season and we look forward to an electric atmosphere.”

 

Chattanooga FC is undefeated against Inter Nashville FC this season. Should they advance to the championship, Chattanooga FC will face the winner of Greenville FC and Asheville City SC. The boys in blue are 2-0-0 against Asheville and 0-1-1 against Greenville. Regardless of the recent history between all these clubs, playoffs bring a whole new dynamic to each match.

 

“Teams just play harder and run faster in the playoffs. Everyone worked hard to get here, so we shouldn’t expect any easy games,” said Bill Elliott, Head Coach and General Manager, Chattanooga FC. “We’ve been here before and know that expectations are high. There’s no doubt that our guys want to add another conference title to the trophy case, and we’re ready to get after it.”
