Atlanta United to host their first ever MLS playoff game

Toronto FC Atlanta United to host their first ever MLS playoff game
Noah Ferguson | 24 October, 2017, 06:05

The 2018 Major League Soccer All-Star Game will be held at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Along with Minnesota, a few others candidates appear to be in line: Orlando City, D.C. United and next year's expansion franchise, Los Angeles FC.

Atlanta finished its inaugural season in fourth place in the Eastern Conference, becoming the first expansion team to reach the playoffs since the Sounders in 2009.

Toronto FC broke a 19-year-old Major League Soccer record for points in a single season on Sunday while a stoppage-time victor gave the San Jose Earthquakes the final playoff berth on the last day of the regular season. "The Atlanta United supporters and fans of the game from across Atlanta are incredibly dynamic and passionate; they will certainly play a huge role in making this a memorable MLS All-Star Game for the league and a special showcase for our great city and stadium". "Every time we open a stadium and we meet with the public about getting their support - and there's lots of public support for this even if it's not financial support". "Along with events such as the Super Bowl, College Football Playoff National Championship and NCAA Final Four, being selected to host the MLS All-Star Game in Atlanta again delivers on our promise to bring the biggest events in sports to Atlanta".

Some recent examples of new/remodeled stadiums receiving games includes: The San Jose Earthquakes, which opened Avaya Stadium in 2015, hosting the 2016 game.

The All-Star Game features a squad of the top MLS players against a leading worldwide team, which will be announced later. Goal reported last week that Atlanta had been chosen to host the All-Star Game. The All-Stars fell to Real Madrid on penalties after a 1-1 draw in Chicago this past summer, with Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Bayern Munich among the opponents in previous years.
