Our Story

The founding club members got together in 2014 and decided it was time to bring everyone together around a simple idea: passion for soccer. Now, with Atlanta United FC thriving in the MLS, it's time to unite around soccer in our hometown. We invite you to join us, whether it's playing pickupcompeting in a league, serving as a community coach, or supporting any of our tournaments or events. Our success depends on the support and involvement of the entire soccer community!

 

Leadership Team

 

Christopher Wedge

President and Co-Founder

 

 

Favorite Team - Ecuador

 

While playing pickup wherever I go, in Costa Rica, Ecuador, South Africa, and Colombia, I realized it was the best way to improve my game. Each country offers a new rhythm to the game. The same movements used to dance in clubs are reflected on the pitch. It's my personal goal to bring soccer communities together, and encourage its fusion into a mosaic unlike any other.

Alex Henry

VP of Operations and Co-Founder

 

 

Favorite Team - Arsenal

 

My passion for soccer transcends many aspects of my life. My involvement with Atlanta's Soccer in The Streets and City of Refuge has reinvigorated my belief that soccer can change the world. If I'm not volunteering, you can probably find me at a local pickup game or having a brew at East Atlanta soccer pub Midway.

Court Sullivan

VP of Business Development

 

 

Favorite Team - Everton

 

Soccer has always been a passion in my life, but only with Sons of Pitches has the game seemed so friendly, community-oriented, and accessible as an adult. I strive to build on this positive energy and bring more players together to share the sport in Atlanta.

Promotions Coordinator

 

 

Favorite Team - Atlanta United FC

 

Soccer is my stress relief and it gives off this amazing sense of community. If I'm having a bad day, I go play soccer. If I want to hang out with a few friends, we go play soccer. No matter what I'm doing I always have a soccer ball near by. Soccer helps to bring everyone together, it's a universal sport where everyone can communicate and escape whatever troubles they may have. You can usually catch me at Brewhouse watching the Timbers game.

Greg Heinrich

Senior Referee

 

 

Favorite Team - AC Milan

 

Soccer has been a part of my life since a young age. It's connected me to lifelong friends and provided me the opportunity to play in college and professionally in Iceland. Now in my older age, I enjoy serving as a referee around the city of Atlanta. Sons of Pitches combines passionate supporters of the game with multiple intown venues that make it easily accessible for those who want to express that passion through playing the game.

League Manager

 

 

Arsenal FC

 

Soccer is one of my life's passions. I love seeing and analyzing the game from many different perspectives. That has meant being a player (first and hopefully always), a fan, a youth coach, and both a referee and manager. Those roles have all been important in trying to foster and contribute to a soccer community, locally and worldwide. Regardless whether you call it soccer, football, or futbol, I'll agree given that you respect and appreciate it.
