"Soccer comes to MARTA Five Points station - and Midtown rooftops"

 

Sons of Pitches FC has literally set its sights a little higher — 8 floors higher, specifically. Atlanta’s largest intown soccer league is rolling out turf for its 3rd annual rooftop soccer tournament, this time heading to Midtown. The annual events are part of the organization's larger initiative to "transform highly-accessible but underused space into active space necessary for urban residents and workers to maintain healthy lifestyles."

"Rooftop Soccer Takes Game to New Heights in Atlanta"

 

Soccer fans have found a new place to play their favorite games in Atlanta this weekend – rooftops. Players were on a downtown rooftop on Sunday playing the game ... on the top deck of a parking garage at 98 Cone Street.

 

One of the co-founders said that with emerging development and fewer greenspaces, he hopes rooftop soccer will soon become permanent. "My big hope is to start running leagues on rooftops and it's hard; it's different," Christopher Wedge said. "The only ones I know of are in New York and in L.A. and I think Atlanta is a world-class city and deserves one. What we hope to do is do a tournament and eventually get a yes and do a league somewhere downtown."
