Chattahooligans rejoice as Chattanooga FC’s season begins
Chattanooga FC kicks off the new soccer season Saturday, May 9, when they host Georgia Revolution at Finley Stadium. The team currently competes in the National Premier Soccer League, an amateur league in the fourth tier of the American Soccer Pyramid, and has won three consecutive Southeast Conference titles.
After last year’s spirited NPSL National Final run, there will be no lack of support for the boys as they have generated a cult-like following in the city. The band of fans, nicknamed the Chattahooligans, are loud, proud and incredibly loyal to their local team. In fact, last season over 8,000 people came out and watched Chattanooga FC play and win their regional semi-final match.
Head Coach Bill Elliot looks “forward to the challenge of a new season,” and insists that “as always, our goal will be to put a product on the field that the Chattahooligans, as well as the rest of the soccer community, can be proud to call their team.” If you cannot make the season opener, be sure to show your support midweek, May 13, as the team follows up with another home fixture against Ocala Stampede. Both games start at 7:30 p.m. at Finley.
