Women's soccer league plans to add Atlanta in 2010

ATLANTA -- Women's Professional Soccer, a league planning to debut next year, has added Atlanta to its expansion list for 2010.

The league, based in San Francisco, is set to open in April with seven teams -- Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, St. Louis and Washington, D.C.

On Monday, the league said Atlanta would be the ninth team after previously announcing Philadelphia as a 2010 addition.

Atlanta businessman T. Fitz Johnson will head Atlanta's ownership group and serve as managing partner.

"We've had our eye on Atlanta as an expansion market for many months," league commissioner Tonya Antonucci said.

The Atlanta Beat played in the now-defunct Women's United Soccer Association from 2001-03.
