    Woohoo! Shows that the Silverbacks are growing and financially (hopefully) sound enough to plan for this kind of development. Great news for Atlanta soccer scene.

    The Atlanta Silverbacks Professional Soccer Club today announced plans to construct Phase One of Atlanta Silverbacks Park at the intersection of I-85 and I-285. Upon completion, Atlanta Silverbacks Park will be the one of the premier soccer facilities in the South-Eastern United States and will provide DeKalb County and the metropolitan Atlanta area with a state of the art facility and soccer fields.
    Stephen Pratten, President of the Atlanta Silverbacks, stated that upon completion of the final phase of construction, “Atlanta Silverbacks Park will insure that the metropolitan Atlanta area in general and Dekalb County in particular will become and remain a premier soccer venue in the Southeastern United States.” Phase One of Atlanta Silverbacks Park will consist of three regulation size soccer fields with state of the art lighting and adequate parking. Phase Two, which is still in the planning stage, will consist of a soccer specific stadium and club which will be home to the Atlanta Silverbacks Professional Soccer Club.
    In discussing this milestone, Pratten stated “we are very excited about the opportunities that this will open up for soccer in the Atlanta area and the region. This project has required a tremendous amount of patience, persistence and a great deal of cooperation between various organizations and governmental bodies, but as construction progresses, the hard work of so many dedicated people will be rewarded.”
    The Atlanta Silverbacks Professional Soccer Club will host an invitation only Phase One groundbreaking ceremony in October. All questions regarding Atlanta Silverbacks Park should be directed to Stilian Shishkov at 770-248-0492 ext 222
