Finley Stadium Davenport Field - Where Chattanooga Plays

Finley Stadium is recognized as the best of its kind among Division I-FCS stadiums, and the 20,668-seat state-of-the-art facility is the crown jewel for the Chattanooga’s Southside revitalization.  It is currently home to the University of Chattanooga Mocs and Chattanooga FC sports teams.

Built on the site of the former Rock Tenn plant in what was then a neglected part of Chattanooga’s Southside, Finley Stadium opened its doors to the public on October 18, 1997. An overflow crowd of 22,646 filled the seats around Davenport Field to watch the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Mocs football team defeat Tennessee State 28-7.
Finley Stadium is named in honor of the late W. Max Finley. The former Chairman of the Rock Tenn Corporation dedicated his life to public service and was an active supporter of the University of Tennessee system. He received both the University of Chattanooga Distinguished Alumni Award and the Outstanding Service Award of the UTC Alumni Council and was inducted into the University’s Hall of Fame.
The playing field is named in honor of the late Gordon Lee Davenport. The President and CEO of the Krystal Company from 1975-85 served as the first Chairman of the Stadium Corporation and Campaign and worked endlessly and tirelessly in the planning and actual development of the facility. Davenport, a longtime friend of UTC athletics and particularly Mocs football, received the UTC Alumni Council Outstanding Service Award and is a member of the University’s Hall of Fame.
Adjacent to the stadium is the First Tennessee Pavilion. The old Ross-Meehan Foundry has been renovated into an open-air pavilion which is now home to multiple events throughout the year, most notably the Chattanooga Market. First Tennessee Pavilion has also become a favorite for tailgaters, complete with food and beverage concessions and a children’s area. The pavilion offers tailgaters a perfect atmosphere around the stadium while providing protection from the weather without being indoors.
