In a continuing effort to bring communities together through the sport of soccer, Chattanooga FC is pleased to announce our 2020 gameday poster series. The limited edition poster series will highlight local artists’ work while celebrating our home matches this season. Each design will be sold in a poster size and postcard size, with 100% of the proceeds going to local charities.
“This is another great opportunity for the club to highlight the talent that is within our community” said Jeremy Alumbaugh, Managing Director, Chattanooga FC. “These designs will showcase a local artist while raising money for underserved communities here in the Scenic City. It’s a win-win.”
The first poster in the series is the piece created by Nathan Swann for the CFC v New Amsterdam FC match, now scheduled for September 16th at 7:00pm. The limited edition posters and postcards will go on sale starting today, with proceeds going to Art120 and East Lake Expression Engine, two local nonprofits that use art and music, respectively, as an avenue for developing children’s creativity and problem solving skills, and building up strong communities through the introduction of the artistic process.
“East Lake Expression Engine is doing good work” said Nathan Swann, artist. “Music is one of the few great equalizers of our time, something that often transcends our social, economic, and racial barriers. What better work could one support than that of training future generations in the art and skill of musicianship?”
“Art120 is a great organization that is helping to break down barriers of accessibility within our local and regional arts communities” added Sean Burney, Brand Strategist & Creative Lead, Chattanooga FC. “They bring in artists from diverse backgrounds to work in underserved schools and elsewhere.”
Additional posters will go on sale closer to the corresponding match. Posters can be ordered at CFCTix.com and can be picked up at the CFC offices on Carter Street, or can be delivered via mail.
