The most intriguing matchup of the knockout round of the MLS playoffs is between Atlanta United and the Columbus Crew. Only one point separated the two teams in the Eastern Conference, with Atlanta finishing just ahead of the Crew. But the game has a very different dimension when viewed through the current fortunes of the two teams.

On one hand, we have Atlanta United, which became the first MLS expansion team to make the playoffs since the Seattle Sounders in 2009 and only the third ever. Playing in the magnificent Mercedes Benz Stadium, Atlanta United twice broke the attendance record for a single-season game and set a new high-water mark for single-season ticket sales with close to 820,000 paying spectators.

Reward from the MLS head office came quickly when it was announced this week that Atlanta will host the 2018 MLS All-Star game.

Awarded an MLS franchise in the spring of 2014, Atlanta United owner Arthur Blank quickly built a first-class operation that hit the ground running when the team started to play this year.

Such has been the team’s success that it’s fair to say that Atlanta United is the “expansion face” that Major League Soccer wants to present to North America and the world.

Longtime Columbus Crew supporters can only look on and remember the days when Major League Soccer officials pointed to the Crew as the face of the league.

The Crew was “the original” of the 10 teams that kicked off the inaugural Major League Soccer season in 1996, and over the last 20-plus seasons, the Crew has won the MLS Cup and the US Open Cup and picked up the Supporters’ Shield three times

Lamar Hunt, the Crew’s initial owner, came to MLS as one of the greatest advocates for soccer in North America. Hunt’s soccer roots went back to the early ’60s, and he was one of the founders and team owners when the NASL was formed in 1968.

Hunt had experienced firsthand how detrimental it was to play in front of 20,000 spectators in stadiums built to accommodate many times more.

The Hunt family promised to build the first soccer-specific stadium in Columbus, and in 1999, before a sell-out crowd of 24,700, they delivered. The entire $28.5M cost was financed by the Hunts.
