The Atlanta Vibe have yet to officially become a team in the National Women’s Soccer League, but they already have a new home.
After initially planning to play at Grady Stadium in Midtown, the team has reached an agreement to play its home games at Silverbacks Park to alleviate concerns over parking.
The team, which hopes to begin play in 2016, would play 11 home games during the regular season.
“We are very excited about the possibility of bringing professional women’s soccer to Atlanta and playing in Silverback Park” Trey Brantley said in a statement. Brantley is part of a group that includes investment firm Southfund Partners that is working to bringing a team to Atlanta. “Silverback Park is a pure soccer field and would be an ideal location for an NWSL team.”
