The Chattanooga Red Wolves Soccer Club says it is expanding the lineup of services and amenities that will be part of the professional team’s future stadium and surrounding mixed-use development.
The club says a VIP experience, beer garden, large youth area and space for events before and after the games are included in the designs for the $150 million development.
The executive club will include VIP seating and a large social gathering space. It will include an exclusive bar, elevated dining options, premium stadium entry, televisions and preferred parking. Executive club members will have premium game seating within the club or reserved luxury stadium seating immediately outside of the club. Season ticket holders are now able to purchase executive club packages.
The club says the beer garden overlooking the goal line will accommodate hundreds of soccer fans over the age of 21. The covered beer garden will include a self-serve tap wall with rotating beers from local and regional breweries. The beer garden will also include a large social gathering space with elevated pub seating overlooking the supporters’ section directly in front of the field. The beer garden will be book ended by dining options and seating.
The club says the children’s area will sit adjacent to the family seating section and include gathering space for parents to enjoy the game and socialize while remaining in immediate proximity to their children. The field-level zone will include inflatables, games and a playground. The area will also be shaded to provide relief from the heat during summer matchups.
The stadium amenities include sky suites, concessions, merchandise, staff offices, locker rooms and space for the team to meet. The player area will include five locker rooms, film room, cryotherapy, satellite gym, physical therapy and recovery room, coaching offices and a dining hall for players.
“While our vision for the stadium’s surrounding development will take time to complete, all of the elements needed for a true soccer experience will be ready to enjoy by next season,” said Sean McDaniel, president and general manager of the team. “We’ll have a field, seats and players. We’ll have the heart of our club, our fans. We look forward to sharing this experience with them for many years to come.”
Built out over the next three to five years, the club says the property is expected to generate between $6 and $7 million in tax revenue each year. When complete, the complex will include housing, shops, restaurants, hotels, community gathering and event spaces and expansive green spaces and trails.
“We are in contact with several hospitality groups that are interested in being part of our soccer community,” said Martino. “We look forward to sharing more information about our potential retailers in the near future.”
When not in use by the Chattanooga Red Wolves, Dalton Red Wolves, Lady Red Wolves or Academy teams, the stadium will act as a venue for specialty sporting events and other events such as concerts and festivals.
The clearing of land and construction preparation is on schedule. The club says "significant progress" is being made across the site.
