Today, Major League Soccer (MLS) formally announced the Atlanta United Football Club’s schedule for the 2017 season. The team will play seventeen home games and seventeen away games. Fifteen of their 34 games will be televised nationally. One of the quirks of their schedule is the fact AUFC’s home fixtures are back-loaded due to the on-going construction of Mercedes-Benz Stadium. AUFC will be at home for the entire month of September with key games against Dallas, New England, Orlando City, Montreal and Philadelphia.
Also, Atlanta United will have two home openers: March 5th against the New York Red Bulls at Georgia Tech’s Bobby Dodd Stadium. The other home opener is July 30th against Orlando City.
Home games are in bold.
