Atlanta United 2 Tryouts & Club Guide: History, Stadium, Players, and More!
Hi, I’m Carlos! A coach, sports enthusiast, and the founder of FCScout.com.
I fell in love with the game at a very young age like many of you. I’ve been following and playing soccer for many years.
Throughout my career, I always enjoyed helping soccer players chase their dreams, which is why I started this website. I wanted to reach a larger audience outside of my local area and fcscout.com was born.
This website is a platform I will be using to update club pages on any tryouts, stadiums, players, tech, and more from clubs around the world. I also create free recruitment profiles for players looking to have that extra competitive edge when reaching out to clubs.
That’s it. That’s my pitch for you to stick around (or browse the site as you please).
This is already too much text for a “see more” drop-down button thing. If you want to reach out to me, head on over to my contact page 🙂

MLS’s Atlanta United announced in November 2017 that it has acquired a USL affiliate team and would begin play in the 2018 season, according to the USL, a Division II league sanctioned by the US Soccer Federation (USSF). Atlanta United 2 was officially unveiled as the team’s name on January 9th, 2018.
According to the league’s announcement, the team will be one of eight that will join MLS Next Pro in 2023.
During their first season, the squad played at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville, Georgia, which can hold a maximum of 7,362. The Atlanta Braves’ Triple-A affiliate, the Gwinnett Stripers, play their home games at Coolray Field. The stadium has been converted from a baseball diamond to a soccer surface in order to accommodate semi-professional soccer.
The pitch will remain 70 by 110 yards (64 m x 101 m) in length, and the premium boxes and other stadium areas will be available for soccer games. On December 14, 2018, Atlanta United 2 announced that their 2019 home games would be held at Fifth Third Bank Stadium in Kennesaw, Georgia.
