Atlanta United today released its secondary kit for the club’s inaugural 2017 season. In recognition of the club’s supporters, the kit was hand delivered to 50 fans during half-time of Atlanta United’s first pre-season match vs. Chattanooga FC. Atlanta United players debuted the kit for the second half of the match.
Representing the club’s inaugural 2017 MLS season, Atlanta United recently announced that the number 17 would be dedicated to, and reserved for, the club’s fan base.
“It was important to us that this kit was in the hands of our supporters first,” said Atlanta United President Darren Eales. “Thousands of people in Atlanta signed up for season tickets and showed support for this club before we signed our first player. The fans have been and will be the lifeblood of this club. This kit is inspired by our city, and we look forward to seeing our players and our fans wear it with pride.”
