According to Sean McDaniel, General Manager for Chattanooga FC. “It’s really exciting to have a club as historically successful as Chivas come here to play us. They are one of the founding members of Liga MX, and the players who will be playing against us will be big big stars someday. Our guys will be ready to play, and it will be a treat for them to go up against one of Mexico’s greatest teams.”
“Coca-Cola is honored to be a part of the CFC and the upcoming match against the Liga MX Chivas.” said Jack Sherman, Sales Center Manager for Chattanooga Coca-Cola Bottling Co. UNITED. “At Coca-Cola we feel CFC is a valued partner in the Chattanooga community and have enjoyed working alongside them. We look forward to a long and prosperous partnership moving forward.”
“We are looking forward to playing Chattanooga FC in May.” said Juan Covarrubias Corona, Director of International Relations, CD Guadalajara. “This is a great opportunity to measure our strength against a great, strongly built institution, to show some chivalry and sportsmanship, to learn from one another, provide a great soccer match, and an amazing atmosphere for the fans that will have the honor to attend!”
This is the second Liga MX international friendly in as many years for Chattanooga FC. Last year, Tigres UANL visited Fort Finley, and the boys in blue held them to a 1-1 draw.
This match will surely be one to remember. Chivas, whose official name is Club Deportivo Guadalajara, was founded 110 years ago in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. The team has won 11 first division titles, seven Champion of Champions (Campeon de Campeones) titles, and three Copa Mexicos. And if all that’s not enough, there will be fireworks immediately following the game.
