"This is such an exciting time for Tennessee, particularly Chattanooga, and soccer fans throughout the region,” stated Soccer World founder Mark Weisman. “Chattanooga is such a great city for a weekend visit with all of the quality hotels and the great attractions around the city. It makes a lot of sense that we are attracting fans from all over the U.S.”
This match will be a rare chance for fans to see two of the most popular teams from Mexico — from around the globe. Pachuca added an extra dash of excitement when they, just days after this match was announced, named Mexican soccer legend and national icon Hugo Sanchez as their new head coach. Pachuca also recently signed two high-profile star strikers: Mexican National Team regular Nery Castillo and Spanish international Raul Tamudo, who was an iconic player at Espanyol.
Club America, led by head coach Miguel Herrera, is one of the most popular teams in the world, attracting fans and fan clubs around the globe. Only a few months ago, Club America knocked Pachuca out of the race for the Mexican Primera title.
This match gives fans a fun opportunity for a rematch. Tickets are $35, $40, and $45 and will be available at Chattanooga FC’s last home game on Saturday from 5:30-8 p.m. Tickets are also available at Ticketmaster.com and all Ticketmaster retail locations.
