Construction ramps up on Atlanta United's training facility

Making progress!

Atlanta United FC has recently begun construction on its training facility and team headquarters just two months after it finalized the lease for the 32-acre plot in Marietta, just off Franklin Road.

The front office staff, including President Darren Eales and Technical Director Carlos Bocanegra, stopped by the training site today and took a few pics.

The training facility, expected to cost up to $40M, will include space for six full-sized fields, offices, and training rooms for both the first team and the academy players.

Late last month, it was rumored that Atlanta United FC are expected to hire Richard Money as the youth academy director. Money will likely oversee all operations at the facility upon its completion and hopefully fulfill technical director Carlos Bocanegra's ambition for the academy to be one of the best in the world. Money has experience in roles across Europe and Australia including Manchester City, Aston Villa, Coventry City and Newcastle United.
