We broke the NPSL attendance record at last weekend’s semifinal match and the league and our organization are looking to break that attendance record again on Saturday.” Chattanooga FC fans set a NPSL attendance record of 9,236 on Saturday night in the semifinal match. Elliott recently led Chattanooga FC to the team’s second straight National Premier Soccer League Regional Championship with a 3-2 victory over Myrtle Beach on July 25. Chattanooga FC has had immense success with Elliott at the helm over the past four seasons. The team has won four consecutive NPSL Southeast Conference Championships, back-to-back NPSL South Region Championships and now three NPSL National Championship appearances. Elliott was also named the NPSL National Coach of the Year in 2014. The five-time Gulf South Conference Coach of the Year will enter his 21st season as the head coach for the West Florida men’s soccer program this fall. A trio of former West Florida men’s soccer student-athletes are on the Chattanooga FC roster, including CFC team captain James Moore, Matt Aldred and Stephan Hohn. Chattanooga FC will face the New York Cosmos B in the NPSL National Championship game on Saturday, August 8 at 7:30 p.m. ET at Finley Stadium.For information on all UWF athletics, visit www.GoArgos.com. #ARGOS#Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more
