Atlanta – Sandy Spring





Many critics of Atlanta's MLS expansion team say the metro region doesn't have a soccer history. That's actually not the case. Atlanta had Phil Woosnam, a Welsh soccer star who came to the United States in 1966 to help the Atlanta Braves set up, and later coach, the North American Soccer League's Atlanta Chiefs. It was the first team in the city to win a professional championship. In the decades since, soccer has flourished throughout the metro region.







More players from the Diaspora are now kicking balls than ever before and amateur players pack rec fields seven days a week at the same DeKalb County complex of the Atlanta Silverbacks. The cream of the region's professional soccer crop, also play in front of thousands of fans. And did we mention the people of the Diaspora? The people of the Diaspora moving around and from around the world have many goals and activities including playing soccer. Playing not just for fun, but a good cause is actually come into the mind of many of the players of the Diaspora World Cup. An organization that brings together the world diaspora of over 200 countries in the Atlanta – Sandy Sring area to build of coalition to committed soccer players and colleges and universities students to solve the world most pressing challenge: Illiteracy.

The Destination
With its rich history, thriving arts scene and global business ties, Atlanta blends genuine Southern warmth with a confident, cosmopolitan flavor. The city of Atlanta may not be quite the arts mecca that New York is, but it got its fair share of cultural opportunities for all members of the world’s diaspora. When musicians go on tour or a Broadway musical hits the road, you can bet they are making a stop in Atlanta. Throw in some awesome places to see live comedy or improve, a couple of solidly entertaining local theaters, dozens of galleries, and frequent special events - the opportunities to soak in some culture are always there for those who are looking.
