With plans to start competing in the 2017 season, Atlanta United FC are still undergoing developments on and off the pitch.

Atlanta United FC's owner, American businessman Arthur Blank, promised that "We're going to make sure we put a winning team on the field in 2017... We're out to win match one from day one, and go for it from there". Even Don Garber, the MLS Commissioner, admitted that he was excited and moved by the new club's big reveal. Following the reveal and explanation of Atlanta United FC's new logo and club colours of black, victory red and golf, Garber stated how "I was sitting in the audience, and I was a little choked up".
