Rooftop Soccer Leagues

 

In 2019 we are working on establishing year-round rooftop soccer leagues in Midtown or Downtown Atlanta, following the success of our three weekend rooftop soccer tournaments in Midtown (Fall 2016) and Downtown (Spring and Fall 2015) attracting a combined 143 teams, 1,200 players, and 3,000 spectators.

 

Interested in partnering on our rooftop soccer initiative? Email info@sonsofpitchesfc.com for more details. We are looking for volunteers, advocates, civic and business decision makers, tournament sponsors, strategic partners, and investors.

5/25/15: "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."
