Atlanta United FC is an American professional soccer club based in Atlanta that competes in Major League Soccer (MLS) as a member of the league’s Eastern Conference.

Founded in 2014, Atlanta United began play as an MLS expansion team in 2017, as the twenty-second team in the league. It is the first MLS franchise to be based in Atlanta, and the club plays home games at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which they share with the city’s National Football League (NFL) franchise, the Atlanta Falcons. Both are owned by Arthur Blank, co-founder of The Home Depot. The club also owns Atlanta United 2, a reserve team that competes in MLS Next Pro.

Gerardo Martino was appointed as the club’s first head coach and guided Atlanta to their first playoff appearance in the team’s debut season, before securing the team’s first trophy in just their second season by winning MLS Cup 2018.

Atlanta has set several league records for highest single-match and average attendance. In 2021, Sportico estimated the club was the second most valuable in the league, worth approximately $845 million.[2]
