Atlanta United 2 moves games from Gwinnett to Cobb in 2019

Atlanta United 2 will play its home games in the 2019 USL season at Fifth Third Bank on the campus of Kennesaw State.

Atlanta United announced the site on Friday. Atlanta United 2 played its home games during the 2018 season at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville.

Fifth Third Bank is much closer to the team’s training facility in Marietta than was Coolray Field, home of the Atlanta Braves’ Triple-A minor league team.

Atlanta United has twice played U.S. Open Cup games at Fifth Third Bank Stadium.
