Atlanta United’s Saturday game is another sellout


Atlanta United is reporting that Saturday’s home game against the Chicago Fire is a sellout.

With 45,000 tickets sold for the 4 p.m. game, it brings the MLS expansion team’s two-game total to more than 100,000 tickets sold.

The capacity for the first game was 55,000. The capacity for the second game is less due to construction on the north end of Georgia Tech’s Bobby Dodd Stadium.

Atlanta United is 1-1. Chicago is 1-0-1.
