Bring the WNBA to Atlanta!
Atlanta needs your help! Atlanta is rallying to bring a WNBA team to our great city. This would make Atlanta the only city in the Southeast with the elite distinction of having a WNBA franchise. There are five powerful reasons Atlanta is a perfect home for a WNBA team: 1. As one of the U.S.\'s top 10 largest cities, with more than five million people, Atlanta\'s population can support a team. 2. The WNBA has the finest women basketball players in the world and showcases women as high achievers. 3. As \"The Sports Capital of the World,\" Atlanta should have at least one women\'s professional sports team. 4. Atlanta is the home base of sports sponsorship, not just in America but in the world. 5. There is currently no WNBA team in the Southeast. Atlanta\'s team would be a regional team, drawing basketball fans of the great teams in the ACC and SEC conferences, as well as the former Charlotte team. But there is only one way to make Atlanta\'s WNBA dreams a reality -- Show the league how much Atlanta wants a team! We must come together to show our support for Atlanta\'s future WNBA team. By signing this petition, you are showing the owner and the league that you want a team here. There is no further obligation when you sign the petition. Please take the time to visit our Web site, www.wnba-atl.org. If you are interested, you can easily pledge to purchase season tickets for our 2008 Atlanta team. By joining in our citywide effort to bring professional women\'s sports to Atlanta, you will be a part of shaping the history of professional sports in Atlanta. Thank you in advance for your support of the WNBA-ATL! Please pass this petition along to your family, friends, and co-workers - we need to prove Atlanta deserves the WNBA! Thanks, WNBA-ATL Organizing Committee BRING IT!
