Atlanta United condemns homophobic chant heard at debut MLS game

MLS expansion club Atlanta United strongly condemned a homophobic slur allegedly chanted by some of its fans during its nationally televised debut game on Sunday.


The atmosphere was electric, and the overwhelming majority of the supporters behaved themselves, but the slur could be heard, both inside the arena and on the FS1 broadcast, during several Red Bulls goal kicks.
