Chattanooga FC To Hold Vaccination Event

Friday, August 27, 2021
 There’s a mission statement that is read at the beginning of every meeting Chattanooga Football Club holds. The mission statement reads: 

Our mission is to use soccer as a tool to build strong relationships – across age, race, creed and socio-economic status – for the greater good of our city.

As part of our mission, Chattanooga FC is hosting a COVID-19 vaccination event at Finley Stadium this Saturday, August 28th, starting at 6:30pm and running through 8:30pm. Hamilton County Dept.
of Health will be administering the vaccines, and each recipient will receive a ticket to the September 18th match, where they can get their second shot at the match. 

CFC captain Juan Hernandez has been vaccinated for a while now and hopes fans will do the same.

“Vaccination not only protects you by reducing the severity of the virus but it also protects the ones you love that are not as healthy as you,” Hernandez said.

“We want to give everyone a chance to get the vaccine if they choose to get one, and what better place than at Finley watching the boys in blue in a battle against Los Angeles Force” said Jeremy Alumbaugh, Managing Director, Chattanooga FC. 

On the field, Chattanooga FC will be looking to rise to first place in the NISA league standings as they welcome LA Force to Finley Stadium. CFC last played Force in the spring playoffs where they lost in the semifinal 3-2. Force are currently in 6th place having drawn their first three games. The boys in blue are currently in third with a 2-1-0 record and six points, just one point from the top position. A win on Saturday coupled with both Detroit City and New Amsterdam losing or tying their games will see Chattanooga FC on top.
