Atlanta United president, Darren Eales, made quite a revelation in his exclusive chat with the Mouths of the South Podcast on Friday. While some Founders' Club members are still anxiously awaiting their phone call to convert their season ticket deposits into actual season tickets, just about everyone already called has converted.
"We know the deposits are over 30,000. We're converting them at the moment. We're going through the list. we are about 60 percent through now. We're in single digits (percentage) in terms of people that aren't taking that up."

This means, according to Eales, through 60 percent of the Founders' Club members Atlanta United has called, less than 10 percent have declined to convert their season ticket deposits. And this is all before the club has even made big-time front office and coaching hires.
"We've still got eight months before we start playing. We haven't had announcement of key player in terms of the head coach, in terms of the kit...even the schedule launch."
