The 22nd season of Major League Soccer will kick off on March 3, 2017. Expectations are high, as two new clubs will be joining the league as expansion franchises. Atlanta United FC and Minnesota United FC will be the 21st and 22nd MLS teams. The Seattle Sounders FC will be defending their MLS Cup title while FC Dallas will defend its Supporters’ Shield championship.
One of the league’s newest teams, Atlanta United FC, will try to live up to its promised competitiveness. It will begin its inaugural campaign, opening the season at Georgia Tech’s Bobby Dodd Stadium. Atlanta United will use this stadium as its home venue until the Mercedes-Benz Stadium is finished this coming summer. Atlanta announced that the team will have Gerardo ‘Tata” Martino as its first head coach.
Minnesota United FC will begin the 2017 season as a member of the MLS Western Conference. The franchise will play in a Saint Paul stadium that will be built in the Midway neighborhood.
