Weisman said that he felt that the people who manipulate and monopolize the soccer scene in Chattanooga are essentially full of 'narrow vision" and are not at all "our kind of people." Soccer World aims to bring the biggest most popular teams possible to their audiences in the South East.
Weisman said Soccer World is now busy working on two summer matches, one in Nashville and one in Memphis. "These matches will be a better representation of who and what we are about, and follow our mission statement very closely, which is to put our fans first and formost." The Chattanooga match, which was held on Saturday July 7th at Finley stadium brought in by all accounts about 10,000 people. Local businesses have spoken out as to how pleased they were as they saw a sharp rise in business over the weekend. The Chattanoga Chamber of Commerce also recognized Soccer World for it's contributons to the local economy. The match featured two of the most popular teams from Mexico, Club America and Pachuca and ended in a 1-0 win for Club America. The match was widely touted as the highest profile match to ever be played in Tennessee.
