Chattanooga Football Club Set To Play Napa Valley On Saturday

First Responders And Military To Be Honored

Wednesday, September 11, 2019

Chattanooga Football Club returns home this weekend after back to back road matches intent on extending their three-game unbeaten streak and honoring our first responders and military personnel who serve our country.

 

A week after the team made its first ever west coast journey, beating Napa Valley 6-0 in the process, Chattanooga FC traveled north to face Milwaukee Torrent this past weekend.

After a Joao Costa goal put the boys in blue on top, the club gave up a late goal and came home with a 1-1 draw.

 

“We played really well in Milwaukee, so it’s a disappointment that we gave up the late goal,” said Peter Fuller, Associate Head coach, Chattanooga FC. “We need to get all three points this weekend, as we’ve seen that there are no off weekends in the Members Cup. The competition is just that much higher.” 

 

This weekend brings Napa Valley to town, and the Northern Californian squad will try to get their first points of the Members Cup season. There are just four home games left this season, and this one is sure to be special. Chattanooga FC will honor Chattanooga’s first responders and military personnel as the nation reflects on the 18th anniversary of the September 11th attacks. In a display of gratitude for those who risk their lives to help others, the club is offering free admission to all first responders and military personnel, both active and veterans for this weekend’s game. Tickets will be provided at the ticket box when fans provide the appropriate ID.

 

“Our friends and neighbors who serve in the military or as first responders are courageous heroes and we wanted to honor them with a small gesture of our gratitude,” said Sheldon Grizzle, President, Chattanooga FC. “We look forward to celebrating a beautiful night with the people who protect our community.” 

 

Fans looking to catch one of the remaining home games are in luck. The club is offering special ticket packages for the last four home matches, and youth/college tickets are now available.
