Red Wolves forms affiliate team to play in USL League Two




The Chattanooga Red Wolves Soccer Club have expanded the franchise with a League Two team.

Beginning in 2019, the Dalton Red Wolves will join the ranks of the United Soccer League as a stepping stone for soccer players in pursuit of professional careers.

“USL League Two is integral in the route to becoming a professional soccer player,” says Bob Martino, owner of both teams. “Until now, the transition from youth soccer to a professional career has lacked a clear road map.”

League Two is considered to be the third tier of the USL behind the Championship and League One divisions. The Chattanooga team is a member of League One.

The Dalton club will compete in the Deep South Division, which currently has seven other clubs.

League Two matches will begin in May. Dalton will play some home games at Chattanooga Christian School’s David Stanton Field, where the Chattanooga Red Wolves will play inaugural season home games. Additional home matches will be hosted at a venue in north Georgia.

Team updates and announcements will be available at www.DaltonRedWolvesSC.com.
