2017 is an ambitious year for Chattanooga FC: a pre-season friendly with Atlanta United FC (MLS), a partnership with VfL Wolfsburg (Bundesliga), and the defense of our sixth NPSL southeastern conference championship in a row, seventh overall. Naturally, in order to compete for all this, you need a team. CFC head coach Bill Elliott will begin building his team this Saturday at Finley Stadium from 9:00am-12:00pm as the club holds open tryouts.
"We have a strong core of guys that we know we can count on for 2017," said Elliott "but these tryouts are immensely important to us. These guys will help us build out our starting 11, and give us the strength that we'll need to compete at the level we're all expecting. The stakes have never been higher for us, and the foundation for a strong season starts Saturday."
***The media is invited to attend tryouts. There will be interview opportunities with coaches, players, and board members on hand***
If you plan to tryout, there are still a few spots available. Tryouts begin promptly at 9:00, and prospective players should arrive at least a half hour early to warm up.
