That set off a Twitter storm from Atlanta after the Falcons’ win.
They will look good in black and red— Atlanta Falcons (@AtlantaFalcans) January 7, 2018

Falcons help Atlanta United win bet with LAFC https://t.co/mlBvFmrCSl— Doug Roberson (@DougRobersonAJC) January 8, 2018
This seemingly innocent social media battle could turn into something different when the season gets underway. LAFC will travel to Atlanta to face United for the first time on April 7. And with many comparing Atlanta United’s smashing success in their debut campaign with LAFC’s ambitions to be a game-changing team, it should be a fascinating game, both on and off the field.
A budding cross-country rivalry perhaps???
