Atlanta’s first Major League Soccer team plays its inaugural game Sunday to a sold out crowd.
Atlanta United hosts one of the league’s founding clubs, the well-established New York Red Bulls.

About three dozen soccer players are scrimmaging in small groups of six at their practice facility about an hour north of Atlanta.
