Atlanta United’s Inaugural Season Comes to an End


Ashfiq Islam, Staff Writer

886,625… That’s the number of tickets that were sold for all of the Atlanta United matches. The team is ranked 20th in the world for fan attendance. Along the way, many records have been broken. In fact, Atlanta United broke their own record for highest MLS attendance, once with 70,425 fans attending and the other with 71,874 fans. They also broke the record for most fans at a playoff game with 67,221. It comes as no surprise that Atlanta United’s MVP was #17, also known as the fans. Their last game was unfortunately a loss to Columbus Crew due to penalties. Even after the loss, ATL UTD fans kept cheering, and they aren’t stopping anytime soon. After the contracts have been signed and loans have turned into deals, new players will arrive, and old ones will return. Next year we will win. Next year will be our year. Next year will Unite and Conquer the MLS Cup.
