Silverbacks to Be Sold?

The North American Soccer League plans to meet with potential buyers Tuesday.

Will the Atlanta Silverbacks find themselves with a new owner next week?

The North American Soccer League plans to meet with potential buyers in Atlanta on Tuesday, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Sports News Now blog.

From the post:

Traffic Sports USA put up for sale its 65 percent stake in the team late last year. Boris Jerkunica, an Atlanta businessman and the team’s chairman, owns the remaining 35 percent, as well as the Silverbacks Stadium and surrounding complex, which is located next to Spaghetti Junction where I-285 and I-85 cross on the north side of the city.

It doesn't say the team is in financial distress. Read the full post for more information.

Keep the NASL's Silverbacks in ATL. Bring the Chiefs (with non-Native American rebrand focusing on other meanings of the word) back in MLS. A great Open Cup & friendlies rivalry begins...
