For many years, Atlanta carried a reputation as a mediocre-at-best sports city. But under Rovak’s guidance, the expansion Atlanta United FC set a series of MLS attendance records last year at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, including a full-season total of more than 819,000 and a single-game high of 71,874 fans last October, a mark it surpassed in this year’s home opener. The Atlanta Falcons, meanwhile, under Rovak also solidified their hold in the city and were just one of nine NFL teams to increase attendance last year.
