Finley Stadium Unveils $30,000.00 Food & Beverage Upgrades
On April 1st, Finley Stadium is unveiling four new food and beverage concepts beginning with Chattanooga Football Club’s season opener against Gold Star FC Detroit. Kickoff at 3 PM.
“These innovations in our food and beverage program were driven by industry trends we are seeing all over the country, studying our own sales data, and listening and responding to fans through post-event surveys throughout Fall 2022,” said Stadium Corporation Executive Director Brian Wright. “We brainstormed and battle tested our ideas through a special F&B Focus Group this winter made up of half-CFC fans and half-UTC fans and can’t wait to unveil the results April 1st.”
The $30,000.00 investment coincides with new operational improvements across the board, such as: going “cashless” and incorporating draft beer options in all Finley-operated concession stands for CFC and UTC games and new point-of-sale terminals to speed transactions.
“Our fan experience is a critical piece to the culture of our club,” said CFC Interim CEO Davis Grizzard. “Finley Stadium enhancing that experience makes our gamedays more exciting and enjoyable for fans, especially for our season ticket holders.”
“We’ve literally doubled the number of lines you can purchase beer at Finley Stadium. This is a great way we can make the event experience easy on fans, and incorporate our local partners in the stadium,” Wright said.
The MAX Grilleworks. The flagship concession stand named after Max Finley himself, features always grilled Stadium favorites, including All-Beef Hot Dogs at a new reduced price, Hamburgers, Cheeseburgers, French Fries, and a fresh toppings condiment bar.
Reggie’s BBQ & Nachos. Sitting along its namesake Reggie White Blvd on the South Concourse, Reggie’s serves former Chattanooga Market favorite Lockhart’s Fire & Smoke pulled pork bar-b-que sandwiches and made-to-order Nachos with fresh toppings, or fully-loaded with bar-b-que.
Chestnut Bakes. The menu is simple, but the food is hot and quality on another level. Cracker-thin flatbread style pizza from CRUST, German Pretzels with Beer Cheese from Federal Bakery in Hixson, and Stadium Popcorn popped right behind the counter.
Fort Finley Market. Two former storage locations behind Sections 103 and 109 have been converted to “grab-n-go” style markets featuring snacks, Coca-Cola products, and 25 Domestic, Local Craft Beer, Canned Cocktail, and Wine brands. This Market gives fans the ultimate choice and speed of service to get back to the game or match.
As always, Finley Stadium events will continue to feature local vendors, including Finley Stadium staples Miller’s Lemonade, The Kettlecorn Man, Windy City Eatz, I Love Tacos, and Spill the Beans among others.
