The MLS Cup trophy has a new home and the party has only begun in Atlanta.
Following the Five Stripes' 2-0 win over the Portland Timbers at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms confirmed on Twitter from the game on Saturday that the parade will take place on Monday.
Congratulations @ATLUTD! You have united our city and conquered the #MLSCup. We can’t wait to celebrate with you at the parade on Monday! Stay tuned for details. #UniteAndConquer https://t.co/j98Kxw2u1x— Keisha Lance Bottoms (@KeishaBottoms) December 9, 2018
As Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter Doug Roberson first reported, the parade will begin at 10 am ET on Monday, followed by a championship celebration outside Mercedes-Benz Stadium that begins at noon.
The route starts at the corner of Baker and Peachtree Streets, and winds past Centennial Olympic Park, the Georgia Aquarium and CNN Center.
