Chattanooga FC Welcomes Veteran Striker Daniel Jackson To Team

Friday, August 13, 2021

Veteran striker Daniel Jackson joins Chattanooga FC as the Scenic City’s professional soccer team launches into the 2021 NISA Fall campaign. Jackson hails from Silver Springs, MD, and will add some extra firepower to a potent front line that scored 3 goals in the opening match of the season and brought Chattanooga FC a first match victory. 


Jackson said “I’m extremely excited to be given the opportunity and contribute to this already talented group of players.

After speaking with Peter (Fuller), he provided me with a positive vision of what he's trying to build here in Chattanooga and I was immediately on board. I’m looking forward to playing for the club and in front of the immense support of the Chattahooligans and fans of Chattanooga FC!”


Daniel has played at every level of professional soccer in the US, being drafted by MLS side Real Salt Lake in 2014. He’s played for USL Championship and League One teams, and overseas in Australia and Finland. Coach Peter Fuller is excited to add his versatility to the team. 


“Daniel has had a good pro career playing in the USL Championship with Oklahoma City as well as with St. Louis while Jeremy Alumbaugh was there as their General Manager. He is a versatile player who possesses great athleticism and will be able to play multiple positions for us through the front and even the midfield. We are excited to have the opportunity to sign him and have him through the NISA Fall Season.”


Jackson is expected to travel with the team this weekend to Long Island, NY, where they will face New Amsterdam FC. The next home game for Chattanooga FC is Saturday, August 21st, against Maryland FC Bobcats. Learn more and purchase tickets at CFCTIX.com
