Chattanooga FC has turned raised eyebrows into believers across the United States, and now the upstart club has found its stadium the center of two massive moments.

First, Finley Stadium will play host to a United States men’s national team match for the first time, when the Yanks host Jamaica for a Feb. 3 friendly.

That was announced Tuesday, and the momentum continued later in the day when Atlanta United announced its first match in club history would be played against CFC in the same venue on Feb. 11.

Founded in 2009, Chattanooga are four times national runners-up in the National Premier Soccer League, including a showing of 18,227 for the 2015 final against New York Cosmos B.

The club has won the Hank Steinbrecher Cup and also finished runners-up once as the best amateur club in the United States.

Finley Stadium holds 20,000, and CFC is using the hashtag #40inFinley with the reasonable hopes of twice packing the building.
