Columbus Crew SC will face Atlanta United FC on Thursday, October 26, at 7 p.m. in the Knockout Round of the MLS Eastern Conference playoffs. As announced by Major League Soccer, the match is set to be televised nationally on Unimas and ESPN 2. The match also airs locally on the radio on CD102.5 FM in English and on La Mega 103.1 FM in Spanish.
After earning the fifth seed in Major League Soccer’s Eastern Conference and the right to compete in the Audi 2017 MLS Cup Playoffs, Columbus Crew SC will travel south for a mid-week match with Atlanta United FC in knockout-round play as they attempt to #ClaimGlory.
The match will mark expansion-side Atlanta’s first trip to the postseason. The trip to Mercedes-Benz Stadium will be the first for Crew SC, after battling Atlanta at Bobby Dodd Stadium earlier in the year while the Five Stripes’ new stadium was being completed.
