Soccer Club Trying To Make Sure CFC "Is Still There For The People" During Virus Crisis

Monday, March 23, 2020 - by Joseph Dycus

The Chattanooga Football Club’s season might be suspended, but that does not mean their front office is not hard at work. Managing director Jeremy Alumbaugh said he and the front office are doing everything in their power to stay connected to their business partners in particular.

 

“It’s staying in touch with our front office staff on a daily basis,” said Alumbaugh. “Making sure that we are staying engaged with our fans and supporters and corporate partners.

We have corporate partners who are open for business, and we have partners who are closed. We’re asking if there’s any way the club can help them. We’re trying to stay in touch with people.”

 

Even as the COVID-19 pandemic goes on with no end in sight, the club is still preparing for the season to resume, whenever that may be. The managing director acknowledged the difficulties of preparing for a day that could come in a week or three months from now.

 

“We’re planning for when this is going to start back up again, and what kind of adjustments we’re going to have to make from a scheduling standpoint, organizing travel, and our marketing,” said Alumbaugh. “But it is difficult, because we don’t know when. So we’re trying to be efficient with our work, because we don’t know when we’ll be back on the field.”

 

In the meantime, Alumbaugh and company are focused on creating content for fans, who own a stake in the team. The team streamed a special cut of their 2016 playoff victory over Miami, the first of what is promised to be several pieces of content in the future.

 

“Our team is developing a lot of content. We had the virtual game on Friday, and next week we’re going to have some other things we’re going to put out there,” said Alumbaugh. “We’re trying to make sure CFC is still there for people. A lot of people rely on CFC to be a part of their daily life, whether that be a news tidbit or a video on twitter or a game on Saturday.”

Remembering Mendon John Price

He would be playing his harmonica. He once was cited in front of me for panhandling and blocking traffic on the street or sidewalk down where the Lookouts play. Fortunately for him, he came in front ... (click for more)
