MLS set to announce Atlanta as the latest expansion franchise

MLS has been hyping a celebration Wednesday in Atlanta, where all indications are that the city will be confirmed as the latest expansion franchise. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution had reported earlier this month that the city would get the league’s 22nd team and that it won’t join until 2017.

This video below, put together by MLS, obviously shows that the news is no secret.

What do you think about Atlanta joining the league?
