U.S. Soccer Headquarters Moving to Atlanta

U.S. Soccer Headquarters Moving to Atlanta

United States Soccer Federation (USSF), also known as U.S. Soccer, recently announced that it will build its new headquarters and a national training center in Atlanta, Georgia. With monetary support of $50 million from Arthur Blank (owner of Atlanta United & Falcons), the move will surely help accelerate soccer in the U.S.

U.S. Soccer Headquarters Moving to Atlanta

The decision to build the headquarters in Atlanta was based on several factors, including the city’s growing popularity as a sports destination and its excellent transportation links. Atlanta is also home to many passionate soccer fans and has a vibrant soccer community, making it an ideal location for the USSF hub.

The exact site for the facility will be selected in January 2024.

U.S. Soccer National Training Center

The National Training Center will offer players an optimal environment, ensuring they have uninterrupted access to top-tier infrastructure for training, development, recovery, and performance analysis.

All 27 of U.S. Soccer’s National Teams will use the National Training Center, and Blank’s contribution will be directed towards constructing facilities for the nine Extended National Teams (ENTs). This contribution will prioritize support for the Cerebral Palsy (CP), Deaf, and Power Soccer National Teams, with a focus on designing locker rooms and training facilities that are accessible and accommodating to players.

“This national training center will accelerate the growth of soccer in this country and will represent a commitment to developing elite soccer players for decades to come,” USSF president Cindy Parlow Cone said recently.

What the Move Means to Soccer in the U.S.

By moving its headquarters from Chicago to Atlanta as well as the training facility from California, it will create a central ecosystem for everything U.S. Soccer.

It will bring in key stakeholders, players, coaches, and others in one location to aid in the growth of United States soccer.

It will also provide a platform for the USSF to showcase the sport and attract new fans and players to the game.

In addition to the benefits for soccer in the United States, the new headquarters will also have a positive impact on the local economy in Atlanta. The construction of the stadium and training facilities will create jobs and generate revenue for the city, while the increased tourism and exposure generated by the facility will bring additional economic benefits to the area.

Overall, the decision to build the new USSF headquarters in Atlanta is a major step forward for soccer in the United States. It represents a significant investment in the sport and provides a platform for its continued growth and development.

This is the ideal timing as we are a couple of years ahead of the 2026 World Cup.
