Atlanta will host a victory parade for the Atlanta United Football Club tomorrow from 10 a.m to 12 noon. The celebration will honor the teams historic Major League Soccer (MLS) Championship victory over the Portland Timbers.
The parade will begin at the corner of Baker and Peachtree Street and will proceed past the Georgia Aquarium toward Centennial Olympic Park, according to city materials. The route will continue up Marietta Street and Andrew Young International Boulevard, terminating in The Home Depot Backyard.

“Long after the confetti is cleared and the champagne is cleaned up, Saturday is a night that will live long in the memory of everyone in the city of Atlanta,” a statement on the Atlanta United website reads. “23 years after the Atlanta Braves last lifted a championship for this city, the Five Stripes brought the city back to glory.”
