At event on Thursday, the Red Wolves unveiled both their crest (shown above) and the design of their upcoming stadium. Among some of the amenities that are included in the Chattanooga Red Wolves stadium design are hospitality areas, a beer garden, and more. More from the Times Free Press:
The organization revealed the new information during a fan celebration at Edley’s Bar-B-Que.
“For months, we have drawn inspiration from Chattanooga’s natural beauty, iconic landmarks and the red wolf itself to create the team’s crest,” Red Wolves owner Bob Martino said in a news release. “This crest will be worn and celebrated by fans of all ages for generations to come. We are pleased to finally share the icon of professional soccer with the people of Chattanooga and surrounding areas.”
The new soccer-specific facility will include sky suites, on-field suites, a fan zone, several dining options, a merchandise store, state-of-the-art scoreboard, a beer garden and hospitality areas. The stadium will have a U-shape configuration with seating along the sidelines to be covered to provide protection from the sun and rain.
Additional information on the stadium will be announced in the coming months, as the Red Wolves are expected to reveal its site in February.
