For as long as I can remember, I have envisioned bringing a professional soccer team in our community. I am thankful for NISA and its members for giving us the opportunity to achieve that dream. Atlanta SC is honored to be a part of a league that will positively change the future landscape of soccer in the United States. The open system that NISA offers will provide athletes and fans the ability to fully realize their dreams. All thanks to God for this opportunity.
