MLS Next Pro dropped the full 2024 league schedule Thursday, revealing the matchups for Atlanta United 2’s second Next Pro season. Gaffer Steve Cooke remains at the helm with the Two Spikes, alongside a smorgasbord of young - and new - talent.
The MLS Next Pro season kicks off March 15th and will continue the same format of penalties at the end of every regulation match where the score is a draw. Atlanta United 2 plays its first match on Saturday, March 16th against Orlando City B at Fifth-Third Bank Stadium in Kennesaw. Our old pals Chattanooga FC, along with Carolina Core FC, also join the league this year, giving the 2’s some other nearby matches fans may want to experience.

The league will also continue its “pick-your-opponent” format in the playoffs. 16 teams in total will make the playoffs, and the top four in each conference will choose their opponent in the first round.
