Atlanta United 2 TicketsFounded in 2018, Atlanta United 2 is an integral part of the wider Atlanta United brand. Owned and operated by Arthur Blank and the AMB Group, which also controls the Atlanta United and Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta United 2 is a reserve team for its parent franchise — a kind of stepping stone for players in the organization who have advanced beyond the academy level but are not yet ready for the main team. Atlanta United 2 is a member of the Division II USL Championship — the second tier of American soccer behind the MLS. Led by Head Coach Scott Donnelly, who has a long career coaching at the youth, college and professional levels, Atlanta United 2 went 7-17-10 in its first ever season. Jon Gallagher led all scorers with six goals in 30 appearances. Atlanta United 2 tickets are available for purchase at StubHub, a leading source for live events.
What was Atlanta United 2’s record last season?During the 2019 regular season, Atlanta United 2 finished 14th in the Eastern Conference with a record of 9-17-8. The team’s 35 points were not enough to qualify for the postseason tournament. However, the club did have some impressive performances. Bienvenue Kanakimana led the team with seven goals in 16 appearances while Luiz Fernando added four assists. Goalie Dylan Castanheira also had 84 saves in 21 games.
What are some of the top games for the upcoming season?Atlanta United 2 opens up the 2020 schedule with home games against the Charleston Battery on March 8 and Louisville City FC on March 15. This is followed by other important home games against the Indy Eleven on May 13, the Pittsburgh Riverhounds on June 17 and the Tampa Bay Rowdies on Oct. 7. After the final game of the season — an away game at Indy Eleven on Oct. 17 — the USL playoffs will commence on Oct. 21. Atlanta United 2 would need to finish in the top 10 of the Eastern Conference to qualify for the postseason. Since Atlanta United 2 is a reserve team, it does not participate in the annual US Open Cup competition.
Who is Atlanta United 2’s head coach?Atlanta United promoted Stephen Glass from academy coach to head coach on Jan. 30, 2019, following the departure of Scott Donnelly. Glass had previously served as the coaching director of the Carolina Rapids — a youth club affiliated with the Colorado Rapids of the MLS — and the Triangle Football Club in Raleigh, N.C. After joining the Atlanta United organization in 2018, he led the U-17 team to a 6-2-4 record.
