In its 100-year existence, Atlas has won a Liga MX title, four Copa MX and four Campeón de Campeones titles.

The 9th Annual Hyatt Place Southpoint Community Shield Match, presented by longtime NCFC partner Summit Hospitality, is scheduled to kickoff at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Tickets for the Atlas match are included in all Season Ticket Membership packages as Game A. Individual tickets to the match will be available to the general public through a two-for-one offer that includes a ticket to the Atlas match and a ticket to NCFC’s regular season home opener on March 25 against Miami FC.
