With all the immigrants here I wonder if we can be like Houston and have pro soccer. I see lots of young Hispanic kids playing in my complex and they are serious.

We are the 8th largest TV market ProAdvance Event Resource Guide: Top 50 Media Markets in the U.S., as long as there is a professional grade stadium built with soccer dimensions, it will happen.

Yeah, the main reason we don't have a team is that we don't have a field in the city/metro with a large enough pitch and seating capacity for an MLS team.

The Falcons stadium will be fit the MLS specs and be able to hold a World Cup. We'll get a team eventually. That should get the Doraville line popping.

Doraville would be the perfect place for obvious reasons. Both ethnic and Marta access.

No, build the new stadium to include soccer dimensions, that way valuable land is not taken up by stadiums. Also, Doraville said no to a football stadium ,why would they want a soccer stadium?
