Viewing Guide: Atlanta’s Summer of Soccer
Where to catch all the action during a packed international slate
ATLANTA — The beautiful game is always more fun with friends.
With Copa America Centenario, The Olympic Games, Euro 2016 and more on tap during the Summer of Soccer, we put together a handy Soccer in the Streets Viewing Guide to give you a heads up on where to join the party while making a difference in the lives of Atlanta’s youth.
