Atlanta United’s inaugural home opener is almost here!
Sunday, March 5th, Atlanta United will face off against the New York Red Bulls at Bobby Dodd Stadium in their first ever, regular season game. The game is almost sold out but there is still time to purchase tickets.
Also! At the Inaugural Match on March 5, the inaugural first kick will be taken by a Founding Member – aka a season ticket holder. If you become a Founding Member by Tuesday, Feb 28 you are entered into the drawing. The lucky winner will be selected at random on Wednesday.
