This Chattanooga FC shirt is a size medium from Diadora. The fabric is standard; what makes this shirt stand out are the extra details. The sponsor is Volkswagen, a nod to the large Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga—the same plant that has come under fire recently regarding the attempted unionization of its workers (Please see: http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/tennessee-volkswagen-chattanooga-union and http://timesfreepress.com/news/2014/apr/05/chattanooga-naacp-supports-workers-rights-volkswag/).  The back has a the Memorial sponsor for Memorial Healthcare Systems and a nice number 14 in yellow.

On the left sleeve is a “2010 2012 NPSL Southeast Champions” embroidery in recognition of the team’s championship seasons in America’s fourth tier National Premier Soccer League. On the right sleeve is an NPSL heat transfer, while the US Open Cup badge is heat pressed onto the front of the shirt—Chattanooga FC lost in the first round of the 2013 competition to the Carolina Dynamo 4-1 on Penalties after a 4-4 draw; this shirt was worn in the match according to Chattanooga FC when I purchased the shirt online (a visit to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga’s Finley Stadium Davenport Field in the summer did not, unfortunately, produce a shirt).
