Fire set for first road test of 2021 Saturday night in Atlanta

Chicago Fire FC face their first road test of the 2021 regular season this weekend when they head south to take on Atlanta United on Saturday night at 7 p.m. CT.

Following Wednesday’s training session at SeatGeek Stadium, head coach Raphael Wicky and midfielder Gastón Giménez discussed the matchup with members of the media.

“Atlanta has been a strong team since they have been in this league, a very strong team,” Wicky said. “They had a difficult year last year, but even last year they had very good players. So we know that this is a good opponent.
