"Ever since we moved to Atlanta, Casey and I have wanted to give back to the city that has been so good to us," stated Atlanta United midfielder Julian Gressel. The professional soccer player will host his inaugural Gresselmania Golf Classic on Tuesday, September 3, 2019, at TPC Sugarloaf in Duluth, Georgia. The golf event, created by Gressel and his wife, Casey, will raise funds for Soccer in the Streets to build a field at a new StationSoccer location Atlanta for kids who do not have access and transportation to play soccer.  

"Next to soccer, golf is definitely one of my favorite sports. So, what better way to raise money than through a golf event? We are partnering with Soccer in the Streets to help make the next StationSoccer location a reality," Gressel stated.

The Gresselmania Golf Classic - a four-person scramble format - will feature a day on the links playing with sports and entertainment celebrities, and cool contests on the course. To learn more about the event listen below!
