We are sorry to report that Saturday night’s game against New Amsterdam FC has been postponed. Our opponents have declined to make the trip to play the game as a statement of support for racial justice and against police brutality. Chattanooga FC respects this decision made by New Amsterdam and their players.
Our club’s mission is to use soccer as a tool to build community, forging strong relationships across age, race, creed, and socio-economic status for the greater good of our city. Consistent with that mission, our players planned to make a public statement on Saturday night to convey their thoughts and feelings on the recent tragic events in our country. While New Amsterdam’s approach differs from our approach, we fully respect it.
Chattanooga FC looks forward to taking the field again soon in pursuit of our mission statement, allowing our players to play the game they love and providing them an opportunity to speak to our community about these events in an appropriate context and manner.
