One Knoxville SC soccer team made its Austin-East debut in the second USL League

The logo was chosen, the groups revealed, and the stadium selected. Now, all that’s left for One Knoxville SC is to play ball this weekend.

The pre-pro football team’s inaugural game will take place on Saturday at home against Asheville.

It’s a historic moment for East Tennessee football fans. It’s also an opportunity to cheer some of the most promising football talents in Knoxville.

The game is a “home” game for One Knoxville, although there is no permanent stadium yet, and is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. at Austin East Magnet High School.

“We are honored to be playing in the same field as the state champions,” club partner Drew McKenna told Knox News in an email. “Twenty-five years from now, we will be looking back with pride because our first game ever was played in Austin East.”

Knoxville and Asheville are rivals, according to McKenna, and the two teams will face each other twice this season in what is being dubbed the Smoky Mountain Range.
