Our Story

The founding club members got together in 2014 and decided it was time to bring everyone together around a simple idea: passion for soccer. Now, with Atlanta United FC joining MLS in 2017, it's time to unite around soccer in our hometown. We invite you to join us, whether it's playing pickup, competing in a league, serving as a community coach, or supporting any of our tournaments or events. Our success depends on the support and involvement of the entire soccer community!

Christopher Wedge
Favorite Team - La Tri (Ecuador)

While playing pickup wherever I go, in Costa Rica, Ecuador, South Africa, and Colombia, I realized it was the best way to improve my game. Each country offers a new rhythm to the game. The same movements used to dance in clubs are reflected on the pitch. It's my personal goal to bring soccer communities together, and encourage its fusion into a mosaic unlike any other.

VP of Operations and Co-Founder

Alex Henry
Favorite Team - The Gunners (Arsenal)

My passion for soccer transcends many aspects of my life. My involvement with Atlanta's Soccer in The Streets and City of Refuge has reinvigorated my belief that soccer can change the world. If I'm not volunteering, you can probably find me at a local pickup game or having a brew at East Atlanta soccer pub Midway.

VP of Business Development

Court Sullivan
Favorite Team - The Toffees (Everton)

Soccer has always been a passion in my life, but only with Sons of Pitches has the game seemed so friendly, community-oriented, and accessible as an adult. I strive to build on this positive energy and bring more players together to share the sport in Atlanta.

Carter Pobanz
Favorite Team - Portland Timbers

Soccer is my stress relief and it gives off this amazing sense of community. If I'm having a bad day, I go play soccer. If I want to hang out with a few friends, we go play soccer. No matter what I'm doing I always have a soccer ball near by. Soccer helps to bring everyone together, it's a universal sport where everyone can communicate and escape whatever troubles they may have. You can usually catch me at Brewhouse watching the Timbers game.

Senior Referee

Greg Heinrich
Favorite Team - AC Milan

Soccer has been a part of my life since a young age. It's connected me to lifelong friends and provided me the opportunity to play in college and professionally in Iceland. Now in my older age, I enjoy serving as a referee around the city of Atlanta. Sons of Pitches combines passionate supporters of the game with multiple intown venues that make it easily accessible for those who want to express that passion through playing the game.

Arsenal FC

Soccer is one of my life's passions. I love seeing and analyzing the game from many different perspectives. That has meant being a player (first and hopefully always), a fan, a youth coach, and both a referee and manager. Those roles have all been important in trying to foster and contribute to a soccer community, locally and worldwide. Regardless whether you call it soccer, football, or futbol, I'll agree given that you respect and appreciate it.

Favorite Team - Inter Milan FC

I couldn't be more excited to be a part of SOPFC. Supporting the club has allowed me to bridge my passions for the game of soccer, technology, and strengthening the community of my hometown. I look forward to finding new ways to enjoy the game that has been such a large part of my life.

Tyler Perez
Favorite Team - The Red Devils (Man U)

Soccer means a lot. Soccer is being able to challenge myself and those around me. Soccer has helped me get to know my community better and understand the importance of creating a positive environment for the community. Also it has helped me develop a global awareness in terms of soccer knowledge and international affairs alike. Without soccer, I believe I might have a narrowed vision of the world.

Jay Delgado
Favorite Team - Barcelona

Football is everything to me. It is my parents away from home and my teacher away from school. I learned about love when I first became a fan of my local team. I learned about pain when a defender tackled me from behind. I learned about solidarity when I stood up for a teammate after he was fouled. I learned about art and music while chanting with "la barra." Football gave me a chance to make friends in a country where I was once the foreigner.
