Chattanooga FC launched into their historic tenth season in style, cruising to a resounding 2-0 win against Emerald Force SC in front of 4,575 faithful on a beautiful May night.
“It was crucial that we start the season strong,” Chattanooga FC head coach Bill Elliott commented. “Daniel Valenciano’s header set the tone for the second half, and Charlie Clarke’s second goal was pure determination. There’s still work to do. We started the game slowly, and that can’t happen against Asheville or New Orleans.”
It’s a busy week for CFC: Wednesday, May 23rd, Asheville City SC comes to town, followed quickly by a home match against NOLA Jesters on Saturday, May 26th.
“Having matches so close together is a great opportunity for coach to rotate players and give guys a chance to shine,” Chattanooga FC GM Sean McDaniel added. “We’ll get to see how players work together, and find some strong partnerships that will help carry us through the season.”
Tickets for both matches are on sale now at shop.chattanoogafc.com for $10. Children 6 and under are free.
