Women’s soccer returning to Atlanta

Add this share

Women’s Professional Soccer says it’s coming to Atlanta in 2010. The league opens next year in cities including Boston, Chicago and New York, with Atlanta and Philadelphia gaining teams the following year.

Atlanta is already home to the Silverbacks, which plays in the United Soccer Leagues. WPU is the successor to the Women’s United Soccer Association, which included the Atlanta Beat from 2001 to 2003. The city is also being considered for a Major League Soccer franchise in an ownership group that includes Arthur Blank, the Home Depot co-founder who now owns the Falcons.
