Details of Atlanta Silverbacks Vs New York Cosmos and the Ticket Luck value
The upcoming Atlanta Silverbacks versus New York Cosmos game features two talented North American Soccer League franchises. Both teams have won numerous championships in between them. The Silverbacks and the Cosmos can be seen playing live at this game with Atlanta Silverbacks vs New York Cosmos tickets in hand.
The Atlanta Silverbacks were founded in 1994 as the Atlanta Ruckus and play home games at the Atlanta Silverbacks Park in Atlanta, Georgia. The five thousand capacity stadium is often filled to the brim at the Silverbacks' home games. The Silverbacks' official colors are red, grey, black and white.
Eric Wynalda is the Head Coach of the franchise which ranked number one during the spring season in 2013. The team was also runners-up at the Soccer Bowl. The Silverbacks have also been runners-up at the USL First Division playoffs and have won the Southern Derby four times.
At their next fixture, they will face the reincarnated franchise from New York. The Cosmos, founded in 2010, are the reincarnation of the NASL team of the same name that played in New York from 1970 to 1985. They play at the Shuart Stadium in Hempstead, New York, a twelve thousand capacity stadium.
Formed in 2010, the team has been dubbed a rebirth of the original Cosmos. Legendary player Pele is the team's honorary president and famous players Carlos Alberto and Shep Messing are the franchise's international ambassadors.
After the original Cosmos disbanded, manager Peppe Pinton continued running youth camps named after Cosmos stars. When Major League Soccer rose to prominence, a number of groups approached Peppe Pinton on using the Cosmos name for a Major League Soccer franchise.
Pinton sold the naming rights to Paul Kemsley, of Tottenham Hotspur, who was heading a group looking to establish a new Cosmos team in the MLS. The group included renowned names from clubs such as Liverpool and Manchester United, but the team eventually joined the North American Soccer League.
