ATLANTA, GEORGIA–After the end of the 2022 Major League Soccer regular season, Atlanta United ranked 22nd among the 28 teams in the league. Atlanta United’s season was predictably gone after an early loss to NYCFC, which they could not recover from.
The Five Stripes’ overall statistics for this season look quite decent, but they were playing catch-up frequently due to poor goalkeeping and persistent defensive mistakes for those statistics to represent anything.
Despite this, 43,312 spectators traveled to Atlanta to watch a pointless game during a season that featured few (if any) high points and a great deal of doubt regarding the club’s future. Atlanta has a lot of work to do this summer to get the product on the field to match the support off the field.
