ATLANTA, GEORGIA—It looks like playing on the road has become a problem for the Atlanta United 2. On April 23, the visiting United 2 fell to the home team Pittsburgh Riverhounds, 4-0 at Highmark Stadium. The defeat is the third straight for the team on the road.

Last April 16, United 2 also fell to the home team, Indy Eleven, 1-2. United 2 striker Jackson Conway scored the lone goal for the team in their defeat. Before their loss on the road, the team suffered a tough 0-4 home defeat at the hands of Detroit City FC at Fifth Third Bank Stadium in Kennesaw, GA, last April 9. United 2 is hoping to have a great USL Championship campaign this year since it is their last appearance in the league.

According to reports, United 2 will transfer to the Major League Soccer NEXT Pro in 2023. The new league aims to create an “integrated player pathway from MLS NEXT through to MLS first teams” by serving as a bridge from the Academies to the professional system. The league is scheduled to debut in March 2022.
