  • 1980- The Chiefs lost 5-0 in Tulsa to the Roughnecks in front of over 14,000 fans.

  • 1982- The Georgia Generals lost 1-0 at DeKalb Memorial Stadium to the Carolina Lightnin'. The Generals outshot Carolina 18-7 and Neto hit the post, but the home side was unable to find a goal. Coach David Chadwick said, “I don’t know what the answer to that is. In all the games we’ve played them, the ball has mostly been in their area, but we just didn’t put it in.”

  • 1996- The Ruckus lost 3-0 on the road to the Montreal Impact.

  • 1999- The Silverbacks routed the Maryland Mania 6-0 at DeKalb Memorial Stadium in Clarkston. Iggy Moleka and Alex Bahr each had a brace, while Jerome Samuels and Guy Norcott also scored.


  • 2020- Frank de Boer and Atlanta United mutually agreed to part ways. In his time with the club, de Boer finished 31-19-5 and won the 2019 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup and the 2019 Campeones Cup. The team was 2-3-0 in the 2020 MLS season when he parted ways with the club.
