Sunday is a day for new beginnings as one team begins its MLS life while another opens its new home.

The schedule then turns to Bobby Dodd Stadium for the debut match for Atlanta United. Led by Miguel Almiron, Tito Villalba and Josef Martinez, Atlanta faces a tough task to begin their MLS run as they take on the New York Red Bulls.

Finally, the Vancouver Whitecaps and Philadelphia Union join the fray for Sunday’s late game, the last of the opening weekend.
