Larentowicz's professional career spans 15 seasons, and he has played for the New England Revolution, Colorado Rapids, Chicago Fire and LA Galaxy in addition to Atlanta United, winning two MLS Cups and two U.S. Open Cup titles in all to date.

Atlanta United kick off the 2020 MLS regular season on Feb. 29 against expansion team Nashville SC at Nissan Stadium.
