MetroStars are back in MLS, and this time they are called Atlanta United

For its inaugural season in MLS, Atlanta United has elected to pay homage to the MetroStars.

Atlanta United has unveiled its inaugural primary kit and...well, Fernando Gonzalez said it best:

Yep. That is a MetroStars jersey.

And it doesn't look any less like a MetroStars jersey when it is on actual human beings.

The Atlanta MetroStars will start life in MLS in 2017. And presumably can look forward to being bought and re-branded by Monster Energy Drink in 2027.

Enjoy your decade in the black-and-red, Atlanta.
