CFC Hopes Turmoil Will Lead To Positive Change

Monday, June 1, 2020

The Chattanooga Football Club released a statement regarding the protests occurring within the city.

 

It reads:

 

“Chattanooga FC is, and always will be, a community club.

 

From the beginning, our sole focus was to bring Chattanooga together, all of Chattanooga, from all races, creeds, and classes.

 

It pains us that throughout our nation many fear for those lives from those that are here to protect us.

Voices of protest have lead to systematic change in our past, and it is our hope that this turmoil will lead to positive change in our future.

 

Stay safe, be good to each other and let’s all demand better from our families, our friends and most importantly, our neighbors. We have to stand strong against racism.”
