CFC Announces New Opponent In August

Tuesday, July 26, 2022

Chattanooga Football Club has announced a fixture with UPSL side Metro Louisville FC on Wednesday, Aug. 31 at Finley Stadium. Kickoff will be 7 p.m.

This will be the second matchup between the two clubs with the first one occurring in October 2020. Chattanooga FC won 5-2.

“We’re looking forward to seeing our friends in Chattanooga once again,” said Metro Louisville General Manager Derrick Davis. “We respect and appreciate the opportunity to square up against one of the top clubs in NISA, and we’re prepared for a battle.”

“This will be an exciting match between two great southern cities,” added Chattanooga FC CEO Jeremy Alumbaugh. “The last meeting saw seven goals at Finley Stadium and we look forward to a fun late summer night on the southside.” 

Louisville is a semipro club that found success in the Great Lakes region of the NISA Independent Cup this summer. They defeated Lancing Common FC and Milwaukee Torrent to advance to their regional final against NISA professional club Michigan Stars in Detroit on Friday.

The Aug. 31 match in Chattanooga replaces Valley United FC on Chattanooga FC’s schedule. The startup club from Phoenix has announced it will suspend all operation for the rest of the 2022 season due to previously announced legal reasons with their club.

Chattanooga FC’s home match with Metro Louisville FC is automatically included in all CFC annual passes. Any single game tickets purchased for Aug. 31 are already valid for the new opponent. Fans still needing tickets can find them at CFCTIX.com.
