Station Soccer expands to MARTA’s Westend
The expansion of Station Soccer is underway!
"Atlanta United Foundation and the city of Atlanta released renderings of the new Station Soccer-West End. The soccer field, which is a partnership of Soccer in the Streets and MARTA, comes nearly two years after Station Soccer at Five Points Marta station opened as the world’s first soccer field at a transit station."
The unveiling of two community pitches at MARTA’s West End station took place at 3 p.m Saturday, Sept. 8.
The event will also kicked off with a 5v5 youth soccer tournament at Station Soccer - Five Points at 10 a.m. The tournament includes competition among four Atlanta-based Soccer in the Streets high school boys and girls teams. The top two teams will advance to the final, which will be played at the new Station Soccer – West End pitches following the dedication ceremony. A date for completion has not yet been announced.
The Atlanta United Foundation provided funding for both locations. Station Soccer will feature two new community pitches surrounding the bustling MARTA station, located at 680 Lee St. SW.
