Speaking at a breakfast presented by Atlanta Magazine on August 20th, MLS Atlanta Owner Arthur Blank challenged soccer fans to fill the remaining 11,000 seats for MLS Atlanta games in the new Atlanta stadium by the end of the year.
With nearly half of the stadium reserved, the MLS Atlanta Founder’s Club program has been extended, allowing the next 5,000 fans who submit a $50 deposit to become season ticket holders. Founder’s Club members are able to reserve up to 8 seats in the new Atlanta stadium for the MLS franchise’s home schedule.
Thus far over 14,000 seats have been committed by fans, who will get recognition in the new stadium, priority seating choices and other benefits.
The MLS Atlanta franchise will begin play in 2017.
