VW KICKS IT IN CHATTANOOGA WITH U.S. SOCCER STARS FOR LOCAL YOUTH CLINIC

U.S. Soccer stars Clint Dempsey and Lynn Williams headlined a special experience in Chattanooga, Tenn., as Volkswagen and Chattanooga FC hosted 200 local youth players for a soccer clinic at Finley Stadium in August.

Gilt Edge Soccer Marketing facilitated the clinic alongside its client and proud U.S. Soccer and Chattanooga FC partner, Volkswagen. To reaffirm their commitment to Drive Bigger, Volkswagen opened this experience to underserved youth in the Chattanooga community to provide access to the world’s game.

Two hundred children took part in back-to-back sessions led by Chattanooga FC coaches and players. The young soccer players showed off their skills in drills aimed at testing their ability in a fun and competitive manner as Dempsey and Williams also featured in drills sharing their knowledge and passion with the next generation of soccer players.

In addition, participants received autographs, a chance to take photos with the players, and Volkswagen goodies — including tickets to return that evening to watch CFC play on the field in which they just trained.

Chattanooga Mayor Tim Kelly also joined in during the event, cheering on as unforgettable memories were made through the beautiful game.
