The Chattahooligans are going to New Jersey.

Tuesday morning, the Chattanooga Football Club confirmed that it is arranging at least one bus to Harrison, N.J., for fans to see the National Premier Soccer League final between Chattanooga FC and the New York Red Bulls' U-23 team at Red Bull Arena, which seats 25,000.

The trip cost will be $119 for the 55-passenger bus, which will depart from Finley Stadium at 7 a.m. Saturday and return immediately after the match, which is scheduled to begin around 9:30 that night. That amount includes transportation to the arena and a spot in the supporters' section.

Club officials said at least 50 people must sign up for the trip to be carried out, but a second bus will be used if there is enough interest.

It is CFC's third trip to NPSL finals; those in 2010 and 2012 ended in losses.

CFC had three players announced to the NPSL Supporters' XI team Tuesday: defender Chris Lavie and midfielders Thibault Charmey and Luis Trude. That involved voting by fans and league supporters. The all-league team, as voted on by media, will be announced today.
