Atlanta United signed Tyler Wolff as a Homegrown Player on July 2, 2020. The forward made five MLS appearances in 2020, with his MLS debut coming on Sept. 2 against Inter Miami CF and his first start on Sept. 12 against Nashville SC.
In 2021, Wolff set career-highs in games played (7) and minutes played in MLS (224). The midfielder finished the season completing 83.1% of his passes. He made two starts, both coming in the month of July against Chicago and Nashville. Wolff also played and started nine matches for ATL UTD 2 in the USL Championship in 2021. He became the first former ATLUTD Academy player to record a hattrick in professional soccer when he scored three goals against Indy Eleven on Aug. 8. The Homegrown finished the USL season with six goals, which was tied for second-most on the team.
Wolff joined the Atlanta United Academy prior to the 2019-20 season and made 11 appearances during the abbreviated season, scoring 14 goals. He particularly shined during the 2019 Winter Showcase in Lakewood Ranch, Florida, where in a span of four days, Wolff scored six goals in three games. He scored twice each against De Anza Force (California), Minnesota United and Portland Timbers, as Atlanta’s U-17s rolled to three consecutive wins by a total score of 12-1.
Off a strong end to the 2019 calendar year, Wolff earned a place with Atlanta United’s First Team during its 2020 preseason training camp at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. He made his preseason debut by coming on as a substitute against Birmingham Legion FC on Feb. 8 and drew a penalty in the second half. Wolff then made his USL debut with Atlanta United 2, starting the 2020 season opener against Charleston Battery on March 8, where he played 62 minutes.
Tyler is the son of former U.S. Men’s National Team player, current Austin FC head coach and Stone Mountain native Josh Wolff.
