Mocs to Host Candlelight Dinner Match on Nov. 10
UTC is bringing back a very unique event for the VMI dual.
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga wrestling team is bringing
back a very unique evening of competition with the 2016 Candlelight
Dinner Match. This triennial event is set to take place against VMI on
Thursday, Nov. 10, at 7:00 p.m. in Maclellan Gym.
Chattanooga opens its Southern Conference schedule against the Keydets on an evening wrestling fans should not miss. Instead of pulling out the bleachers in the lower section of Maclellan Gym, UTC is bringing in tables of eight, with formal place settings, for a full mat-side meal during the match.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. (E.S.T.) and valet parking is available at the Douglas Street entrance to those who have purchased the Candlelight experience. The Mocs hit the mat against VMI at 7:00 p.m.
Fans who purchase a dinner ticket will be closest to the action and enjoy the meal catered by Taziki's Mediterranean Café. Members of the wrestling team not competing will work the room as your hosts and servers.
