What’s Up Next

Up next Atlanta United embark on a 4 game, month long road trip which starts with our good friends down in Disney World, Mickey Mouse FC AKA Orlando City. How sweet would it be for Josef to break the record there. After Orlando, Atlanta heads to DC, Colorado and San Jose before finally returning to the Benz on Saturday, September 22nd.

As the season winds down, the focus for the Five Stripes should be maintaining health as well as trying to secure at the very least a top 2 seed in the East as well as the Supporter’s Shield.
