February 17, 2011 - Women's Professional Soccer (WPS) - Atlanta Beat News Release


KENNESAW, GA (February 17, 2011) - The Atlanta Beat unveiled its complete 2011 Regular Season Schedule on Thursday just under two months before opening weekend on April 9-10, marking the start to the team's second year of play.

"We are thrilled to get our second season off and running at KSU Soccer Stadium, said Beat assistant general manager Kristin Lettiere. "The Beat have made significant changes both on and off the field to ensure the stability and success of our team and the league."

The 2011 Beat Regular Season will run April 9-August 14, 2011 with the WPS Playoffs scheduled for the last two weeks of August for the top four teams in the WPS table. The Beat will play a total of eighteen games, with nine home matches and nine away matches. The league will take a two-week break from June 25-July 4 during the group stage of the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup(tm) in Germany.

"This will be a great year to celebrate women's soccer," said WPS CEO Anne-Marie Eileraas. "WPS teams continue to bring the world's best players to America for our fans to enjoy week-in-week-out. The World Cup will introduce new fans to women's soccer and provide more exposure to the terrific stars and teams in our league."

For the third year in a row, the league will feature a national television game of the week on Fox Soccer Channel's "WPS Sunday on FSC," with appointment-viewing every Sunday evening throughout the spring and summer. The national television schedule includes six appearances by the Beat, with three appearances at home, and three away.
