Atlanta United FC Details
Atlanta United FC was named as a Major League Soccer expansion team in 2014 and began playing matches in 2017. The club’s expansion bid was led by Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank. Former Argentina men’s national team coach Gerardo “Tata” Martino was named the club’s first manager. Atlanta United adopted a black-and-red striped home kit during its inaugural season that led to the club’s nickname, The Five Stripes.
The club split its 2017 season between Georgia Tech University’s Bobby Dodd Stadium and Mercedes-Benz Stadium. When Mercedes-Benz Stadium was completed, Atlanta United was able to expand its seating capacity from 55,000 to 73,019. From the start, a rivalry developed with Orlando City SC due to the clubs’ proximity and roles as recent expansion sides. In 2017 and 2018, Atlanta won four and tied two of the six matches against Orlando.
In the club’s early seasons, players including Josef Martinez, Miguel Almiron, and captain Michael Parkhurst led Atlanta United to playoff berths. Atlanta United hosted a 2017 knockout round match against Columbus Crew SC that ended with a Columbus victory on penalty kicks. The club followed a second-place finish in the league’s Supporter Shield race by hosting and winning the 2018 MLS Cup against the Portland Timbers. Atlanta also hosted the 2018 MLS All-Star Game against Juventus.
Martinez was named the 2018 MLS MVP, the 2018 All-Star Game MVP, and the 2018 MLS Cup MVP. The Venezuelan striker set the league’s record for goals scored in the regular season with 31. He scored the MLS All-Stars’ only goal in the 2018 All-Star Game and the deciding goal in the 2018 MLS Cup. Martino was also awarded the 2018 MLS Coach of the Year award.
