The MLS’s Atlanta United FC is Upping Their Game With A New World-Class Training GroundPosted on July 20, 2016
Residents of the Athens area live in a sports mecca. Braves Baseball, Falcons Football, Hawks Basketball and no one can deny the Dawg’s are on top of the list. Until now, there’s only been one missing element in the lineup, but the MLS is quickly changing that.
Atlanta United Football Club will be the first MLS franchise to be introduced to the Atlanta area. When looking for the best-in-class training facility, the new team has got it all. The 60 million dollar project will be spread across a 33-acre site and will include a 30,000 square foot headquarter building and six fields.
The new facility brings endless opportunities for Atlanta United. The training ground will hold tournaments and open training sessions as well as host visiting national and international clubs.
Atlanta United president Darren Eales has placed a huge importance on the critical role that youth development will play in the success of the club. He stated, “We put a lot of thought into the design of the training ground to ensure that it provided our first team with a top-flight training environment, as well as an open, collaborative and aspirational atmosphere for our young academy players.”
The new training ground will be located in the City of Marietta. The city has welcomed the project with open arms and is excited to partner with such an amazing organization. Atlanta United owner Arthur Blank firmly believes that creating a successful team begins with creating a training environment that cultivates a winning attitude.
The Atlanta United Football Club will begin playing in 2017 at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in downtown Atlanta. As the largest metropolitan area without an MLS franchise, the new team has triggered a lot of excitement.
This is just another exciting attraction that the residents of The Georgia Club get to experience first hand. The Georgia Club enjoys the best of all worlds- small town sophistication, Atlanta’s big city excitement and historic downtown Statham. There is something for everyone at The Georgia Club.
