Atlanta United is the newest franchise to join Major League Soccer along with fellow expansion team Minnesota United out of Minneapolis. While both play this weekend the game we are most looking forward to is Sunday at 7:30 EST at Bobby Dodd Stadium when the NY Red Bulls come into town to face our ATL UTD. (on FS1 for those who couldn’t get tickets)
Atlanta United have sold 50,000+ tickets to the game already and are sure to sell the last 5k between now and game time. When was the last time Bobby Dodd was sold out for anything? I’ll wait….
This fan base has so much passion for a team that has literally never played a competitive match in a season or tournament. We have 4 main fan groups that have popped already. Be sure to check out their pages here:
Let’s hope everyone is on the same page and creates one hell of an atmosphere for a Sunday Funday. Chants and songs are what are half the fun at these games. Dreaming of getting 55k on the same page got me like
A couple items to note:
Weather – high 63/low 47. Partly cloudy. Sounds like damn good tailgate weather. Over Easy Sports will be there in full force with a cooler stocked full. Stop by. Tweet me @DukeOESports to check out the fun.
