English Premier League (EPL) club Middlesbrough FC will send its U21 squad to the Scenic City this summer for a huge clash against Chattanooga FC on July 27, 2016. It will mark the first time that a Premier League club’s development squad has played Chattanooga FC. Middlesbrough’s first team just won promotion to the Premier League, considered one of the world’s best leagues, after a seven-year absence.
“This really is a thrill,” said Sean McDaniel, General Manager for Chattanooga FC. “Middlesbrough have been around since 1876. They have a storied history. They’ve won some big trophies in England over the years, and we are ecstatic that they will be coming here. We expect a huge turnout and a great atmosphere.”
Tickets will be $12 in advance, $15 at the gate, and are on sale now at ChattanoogaFC.com. Your season pass will not be eligible for this match.
