The sights and sounds of Atlanta United FC's inaugural game

ATLANTA, Ga  -- Atlanta United, set to take the field on Saturday for its second home game, will be playing in front of another sellout.

Atlanta United is the first expansion side and the second-ever MLS club to break the 100,000 mark in combined attendance in its first two home matches.

After Saturday's game, Atlanta’s average attendance will be 50,000, placing the club No. 1 in the league. The Seattle Sounders topped MLS in average attendance with 42,636 In 2016.

The team lost its first-ever game in Atlanta against the New York Red Bulls but won its first game last week against Minnesota United in snowy conditions.
