Atlanta United FC 

Atlanta United FC appeared on the scene in MLS as a new expansion franchise in 2017 with a quietly impressive first season, finishing 4th in the Eastern Conference and qualifying for the MLS Playoffs, where they lost in the First Round. No one could have anticipated, however, what would happen in season two, however, when Atlanta United finished 2nd in the whole league in the regular season led by star striker Josef Martinez, who set an MLS record with 31 goals, and current Premier League player Miguel Almirón, who notched 12 goals and 14 assists. Atlanta then went on a mad run through the Playoffs to the MLS Cup Final, held in front of an incredible home crowd of 73,019 at the cavernous Mercedes-Benz Stadium, where they managed to defeat the Portland Timbers 2-0 and win their first MLS Cup in just their second years of existence! The next year, in 2018, Atlanta United followed up on this success by reaching the Semifinals of the MLS Playoffs, winning the US Open Cup as well as the Campeones Cup (played between the previous year’s champions of the USA and Mexico). Since the departure of Almirón and Martinez, as well as inspirational coach Tata Martino (now manager of Lionel Messi’s Inter Miami CF), Atlanta United have struggled somewhat in recent years, but with crowds of 40-50,000 cheering them on at home games, surely it will only be a matter of time before they are back on top.
