'Major announcement' planned that just happens to feature Major League Soccer commissioner, Arthur Blank, mayor

Posted By on Mon, Apr 14, 2014 at 1:18 PM

On Wednesday afternoon, Mayor Kasim Reed and Arthur Blank will join Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber in Downtown to make a "major announcement" on the "future of soccer in Atlanta." Also in attendance: Frank Poe, the Georgia World Congress Center Authority's executive director. Alexi Lalas, the former U.S. Men's National team player, last week was also cryptically tweeting that he'd be in town and possibly bumping into the Atlanta Falcons owner.

It's safe to say that Atlanta is getting a Major League Soccer team. Or getting handed an oversized check to buy soccer balls for a rec center. Fingers crossed!
