Match Preview: Silverbacks host Savannah Clovers in preseason friendly

The match will be the first in a two-game friendly series between the two Georgia clubs

The Atlanta Silverbacks in 2016

The Atlanta Silverbacks will host Savannah Clovers FC at 4:00pm today at Silverbacks Park in the final home preseason match before the 2017 NPSL season.

This preseason, the Backs have drawn Dalton State College 1-1 and defeated the Latino League All-Stars 2-1. They also hosted a friendly with the Sons of Pitches at the Silverbacks Fan Fest. The game against Savannah will serve as the penultimate tune-up match before the 2017 NPSL season kicks off on May 6.

Today’s match will be the first in a two-game friendly series with Savannah. Founded in 2016, the Clovers are a non-league side that have set their sights on bringing NPSL soccer to the Square City. The match against Atlanta is the third of their 2017 Showcase Matches where they have played Lowcountry United (Charleston, SC) and the Georgia Revolution.

The match against Savannah will kick off at Silverbacks Park at 4:00pm. Admission is free but parking will cost $2 per vehicle.
