What a great season for Atlanta United with it only being second season after expansion, to win a championship that fast is amazing.
I believe it all start with leadership and there is no better leader than Owner Arthur Blank who built this team. Put all the right pieces in the right places to make a championship team.
The Drought Is Over
The city’s soccer club, Atlanta United, won the championship of Major League Soccer on Saturday night with a 2-0 victory over the Portland Timbers.
Josef Martinez and Franco Escobar scored for United, while goalkeeper Brad Guzan made some clutch saves.
“It’s not every day you get to win a title,” Guzan said. “To be a part of this is truly special.”
Portland was seeking its second MLS championship after winning the cup in 2015. However; Atlanta United FD says not this year. We are champs.
Atlanta United’s Champions Parade set for Monday, will be televised.
There’s going to be a Champions Parade in Atlanta. This is not a drill.
