The Atlanta Kookaburras are excited to tailgate and show our support for the other footy club here in Atlanta (you know, the one drawing 45k fans per game in their first year!). We'll have beverages and Kookas merchandise on hand, and we will be raffling off 2 tickets to the upcoming Atlanta United game on July 4th for all of our generous donors (suggested donation $10). All proceeds from this tailgate will support the club as we look to raise funds for our trip to USAFL Nationals in San Diego this Fall.
Please come support all Atlanta footy!
We will be setting up in The Varsity Parking Lot adjacent to the Supporter's Groups (first come, first serve parking) and only 2 blocks from the North Ave. MARTA Station. Parking in Midtown is plentiful, and Uber/Lyft are great options as well! If you have not been to an Atlanta United Tailgate yet, it is a sight to behold, and we know you'll have a great time!
Adjacent tailgates also have many kid-friendly activities (including a small pitch for small-side soccer games!
