Atlanta United FC continues to receive robust fan support, as the club has sold out its next match at Bobby Dodd Stadium.
The expansion United FC has leveraged Bobby Dodd Stadium’s large capacity into solid crowds for its home games. The inaugural match against the New York Red Bulls on March 5 drew a reported 55,297 fans, which was followed by another sell out for the contest against the Chicago Fire on March 18.
United FC is set to host its third sold out contest on Sunday, when the club matches up against D.C. United. News of the sell out was announced by the team earlier this week:
