Major League Soccer will be making a “major announcement” on Wednesday evening in Atlanta.

All signs point to Atlanta being named the league’s latest expansion franchise and the league’s 22nd club, with the future team being operated by Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank. The new team is expected to play in the new Falcons stadium, which is expected to be ready by 2017.

Blank will be joined by MLS commissioner Don Garber, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and Frank Poe, the executive director of the Georgia World Congress Center Authority, at the event in downtown Atlanta.
