Mocs Football Continues To Prepare For September 3rd Opener

Tuesday, August 16, 2022

The 12th-ranked Chattanooga Mocs continue work to one date. Their Sept. 3 date with Southern Conference foe Wofford in Finley Stadium looms. While the team’s focus is on the next game, the Mocs marketing and promotions machine churned out a plan for the entire season.

 

Opening on the Labor Day holiday weekend, Staycation is the theme for week one.

No need to leave town, stay local and join the Mocs for an exciting season opener. The perfect option is staying at the Chattanoogan, taking advantage of its great nightlife options in High Rail Rooftop Bar along with The District and FORGE. Mornings in Noogans Coffee Market, it’s the downtown resort life with no reason to get in the car on gameday with a simple stroll to Finley.

 

There are several raffle items available leading into gameday including tickets to Tennessee Aquarium as well as famed Ruby Falls. Food items from Taziki’s and Papa John’s (free pizza for a year!) along with tickets to good friend Chattanooga Football Club along with a VIP Experience with the Chattanooga Lookouts.

 

Gameday promotions include thunder sticks for the first 1,000 fans. It’s the Scrappy’s Kids Club Game with each kids club member receiving a free GA ticket to the contest. Hamilton County resident?
