FC Dallas To Open Atlanta United's New Stadium

ATLANTA − The new stadium tour in 2017 just got a little more interesting.

FC Dallas was already scheduled to visit three stadiums for the first time in their September road trips, including Atlanta United FC, Minnesota United FC, and Orlando City SC. Earlier today, Atlanta United published a press release on the team's website stating that three of the team's matches will be affected.

“The reason for a revised timeline is quite simple: normal surveying and analysis of the roof structure, as well as steelwork in the roof, have both taken longer than planned." said Steve Cannon, chief executive officer of AMB Group, LLC. "Those two things have had a cascading effect on overall workflows related to the roof and that is the reason for the new timeline."
