Chattanooga Football Club, founded in 2009, is relocating to a larger office in downtown Chattanooga. The move comes "as a result of Chattanooga FC's growth and the need for increased capacity to better serve its valued supporters and partners," officials said.
The new office, located at 436 Market St., "provides 6,740 square feet of space for an expanding team, fosters a collaborative work environment, and offers enhanced facilities to support the club's mission," it was stated.
"This relocation signifies a momentous step in our journey," said Alton Byrd, CEO for Chattanooga FC. "It reflects our dedication to meeting the needs of our fans and partners while providing an inspiring workplace for our talented team members. We're excited about the possibilities that this larger office presents."
He said the new office space "aligns with Chattanooga Football Club's vision for the future and remaining the premier sporting entertainment option in the region."
It includes a wall that reminds visitors and staff of the 2009 mission statement: "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."
Another wall showcases the organizations that make up the CFC family: CFC Men's & Women's teams, CFC Academy, CFC Foundation, CFC Camps, Chattanooga Sports Ministries, Operation Get Active, Chattanooga Football Leagues, Highland Park Commons, and Montague Park.
This year, Chattanooga FC has added more than 10 full-time positions with potential to grow even more in 2024, officials said.
Chattanooga Football Club returns home this Saturday to host Gold Star FC Detroit. The day will include a Hispanic Heritage Celebration and block party at 3 p.m. on Chestnut Street next to Finley Stadium followed by the game at 6 p.m. Fireworks will end the evening.
