Grant Wahl: Atlanta United reportedly have ‘strong interest’ in NWSL expansion bid

Could Atlanta’s long wait for an NWSL team soon be coming to an end?

In an interview with ESPN on May 4, new NWSL commissioner Jessica Berman discussed her desire to see the league grow beyond its current 12 clubs. That includes 2 new ones that entered the fold in 2022: Angel City FC — which plays at Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles and counts among its ownership Natalie Portman, Serena Williams and her husband Alexis Ohanian, and Jennifer Garner — and San Diego Wave FC, home to USWNT stars Abby Dahlkemper and Alex Morgan.
