The World's Game In The Heart of the Sun Belt

A new start for the new-look Atlanta Beat

After a busy week of scooping up players from the defunct St. Louis Athletica, the Atlanta Beat takes to the field Sunday looking for its first win in Women’s Professional Soccer against the Chicago Red Stars.

Kickoff is 6 p.m. Sunday ET at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, Ill., and the game will be shown live on Fox Soccer Channel.

Atlanta (0-5-1, 1 point) has added four Athletica players,  including goalkeeper Hope Solo and forward Eniola Aluko, whose four goals are tops in the WPS thus far.

Chicago has undergone a major change early in the season as well, with Omid Namazi making his head coaching debut after Emma Hayes was fired. The Red Stars are 2-4-1 with 7 points.

Atlanta soccer fans will have to wait until June 19 to see the Beat at the Kennesaw State soccer complex when Chicago visits.
