On Assignment: MLS Comes To ATL

April 16, 2014- Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, MLS commissioner Don Garber and Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed gathered at a press conference yesterday to announce the arrival of Major League Soccer to Atlanta. No team name yet, but the Terminus Legion of Atlanta soccer supporters showed up armed with chants, flags and their own scarves. “Uncle Arthur” was a crowd favorite as fans and Blank exchanged niceties about his role in bringing the team here and the fans’ role in drumming up fervor. Blank got a pretty big cheer from the soccer aficionados as he pledged that the field would never show American football’s yard lines and hash marks. 2017 will be the kickoff season for the team. #MLSAtlanta
