Champions League ATL 2017
Sun, May 21, 2017, 9:00 AM – 7:00 PM EDT
The action is unmissable each year when teams of Atlanta’s most passionate soccer fans, representing sixteen teams of the most illustrious European soccer teams and our own Atlanta United FC, battle it out for the title of the ATL Champions League. The banter in the pubs is now over, and it’s time for them to let their feet do the talking on the pitch!!
Behind all the fun is a very worthy cause, as our competition is a fundraiser for Soccer in the Streets; an Atlanta based charity empowering children in our community by leveling the playing field for all and offering sustainable free youth soccer programs that cultivate change, education, and positive employment opportunities.
