Atlanta ventures up to the northeast and to a new channel
After a bit of time to regroup from that game on Tuesday, Atlanta United now shifts its focus back towards MLS play with a trip up the eastern seaboard for a meeting with the New England Revolution this evening.
In what will be a busy night for Atlanta sports, the Braves, the Hawks, and United will all be starting their respective games within an hour of each other, prompting the broadcast planners to get a little creative. So, rather than be on Bally Sports, the Five Stripes will instead be found on the CW for the first time. Alongside the CW69 television broadcast, the match will be streamed on atlutd.com/live for those in the geofenced area. Out of market folks can still view the match on ESPN+ as you would any other non-nationally broadcast game.
For the people who had difficulty finding the match last weekend, this will hopefully bring some relief in your hunt for televised soccer. Whether over the air or online, this match will be one of the more accessible ones of the year, so prepare yourself with our match preview and predicted lineup, then come back here in time for kickoff and join in on the fun in the match thread below.
