The Chattahooligan feature is designed to do two things: to familiarize the viewer with the Chattanooga Football Club fan base known as The Chattahooligans, and to highlight their influence in the city by showing their support for Operation Get Active (an organization started through the CFC Foundation).
In this multimedia piece, three Chattahooligans are interviewed at an OGA event, and while each are interviewed separately, they all touch on the importance of building community through organizations like OGA, which emphasizes inclusiveness, and giving everyone the opportunity to participate. Inclusiveness and opportunity are two core ideals in the The Chattahooligan fan base, and while they are comprised of many members, with each having varying levels of interest in the game, each ultimately share the same passion for cultivating community in Chattanooga.
