Our Director of Strategic Projects values the empty space, he created as a legacy.
"Why not eliminate that [vacant space] and build fields at stations?” Sanjay Patel asked himself, after seeing kids use the subway in the United Kingdom to get to games. “[We can] use the existing transit network to connect communities.”
Executive Director Phil Hill also comments,
“We can connect the Hispanic kids in the North, African American kids in the West, refugee kids in the East” all through MARTA, Hill said, transforming Station Soccer into the League of Stations.
