The trading floor activity will ramp up quickly

MLS: Combine Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

The MLS schedule will be dropping today, and we’ll be all over it here at Dirty South Soccer. You will finally be able to plan your Downtown Atlanta days and nights cheering on Atlanta United, as well as picking out some road trips to see the team in other cities.

Today is also the final day of the MLS Combine, one day ahead of tomorrow’s SuperDraft. The story of the Combine has been Duluth’s Daniel Johnson, who is flying up draft boards after a stellar performance. So far, no trades have been made, but the phone lines should be busy between now and tomorrow’s draft.

Stay tuned to us on social media for the latest as news could break at any time.
