Financial Report

  • ATL Spurs have approx. $1600 in the kitty
  • Because we do not have a membership fee, all ATL Spurs funds are raised through merchandise
  • Money in the ATL Spurs kitty is used for up-front costs for merchandise, club necessities like our two new flags, purchasing raffle prizes, charitable donations, Spurs supporters’ club dues, and THST dues
  • Last year’s charitable donations totaled $500
  • ATL Spurs books are open to all members. For detailed information, please contact Larry

Design and Merchandising

  • Last year’s t-shirts and scarves, featuring our new ATL Spurs logo, proved popular
  • We have a very small remaining inventory of scarves and shirts. We will have them at all games and they are available on our website at https://squareup.com/store/ATLSpurs/
  • We did a limited pre-order only run of kids’ shirts this year. Any future kids’ shirts would be done on an on-demand basis.
  • A bar flag and travel flag were commissioned this year. The bar flag hangs in Meehan’s and the travel flag has been seen in Orlando and Nashville.
  • A new shirt will be released this fall
  • If you have ideas for merchandise that you’d like to see offered, please contact Jordan

Community Outreach

  • Last November, ATL Spurs participated in a Habitat for Humanity build
  • Last May, ATL Spurs participated in fundraising for, and donated to, Soccer in the Streets
