Hugo Martinez returns to Chattanooga Football Club for the 2023 on an academy contract. The native of Cleveland, TN used to play in the Chattanooga FC Academy before joining North Georgia Soccer Association and SSA MLS NEXT.
The academy contract allows Martinez to train with the club’s academy and to be promoted to play with the main roster for the CFC men’s team while retaining college eligibility should he decide to leave the organization and play in college.
Martinez earned his first minutes in a professional match in 2022 when CFC host Charlotte FC MLS NEXT Pro in a friendly.
"Growing up in the CFC atmosphere and community as a kid was really special," said Martinez. "Now I have the chance to pass it on to others kids like me."
In 2014 while playing with CFC Academy, Martinez was part of the prematch walkout with CFC legend Juan Hernandez. In 2022, he joined Juan as a teammate.
"I hope kids will get the chance to walk out with the team like I did and have the chance to also play with the first team."
Annual passes for the 2023 season Chattanooga FC Men’s team and Chattanooga FC Women’s team are on sale at CFCTIX.com.
