Atlanta United joined Major League Soccer in 2017 and won the 2018 MLS Cup in just its second season, the earliest an expansion team has won the title since 1998. The club has set multiple league records including season tickets sales (36,000-plus), single-game attendance (72,548), single-season average (53,002) and total home attendance (901,033). Owned by Arthur M. Blank, and led by club President Darren Eales, Atlanta United plays its home matches at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Fifth Third Bank Stadium has hosted multiple Atlanta United events including CONCACAF in 2019 and U.S. Open Cup matches in 2017, 2018, and 2019. Fifth Third Bank Stadium will once again be hosting Atlanta United’s team for the CONCACAf Tournament in 2020.
