The expansion franchise rematch is back on track.
Minnesota United will face Atlanta United at 6 p.m. Oct. 3 at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta announced Wednesday. The match was originally Aug. 13, but Atlanta announced the postponement of several matches back in mid-April because of continued construction on its new stadium.
The change means United now has a week off between meetings with reigning MLS champions the Seattle Sounders, playing the Sounders at TCF Bank Stadium on Aug. 5 before traveling to Seattle Aug. 20.
The rescheduled match date comes midweek between an away trip to the Houston Dynamo on Sept. 30 and the final home match of the season on Oct. 7 against Sporting Kansas City
In the teams’ first meeting March 12 in the second match of the season, Atlanta drubbed Minnesota 6-1 in a snowy home opener for the Loons.
