Atlanta Xplosion women’s professional tackle football team moves to Clayton County



ATLANTA, Ga.
The Atlanta Xplosion, 2010 Independent Women’s Football League (IWFL) Division Champion, will make Tara Stadium in Jonesboro its home field in 2011. The season opener will be
April 16 versus Chattanooga at 6 p.m. Tickets are $7; kids under six are admitted free.

“We moved because of our long-term partnership with Clayton County,” said Mashonda Gilmore, GTA Management Group vice president and IWFL delegate. “We want to continue to make a positive impact on the Atlanta community and future fans of the Atlanta Xplosion.”

Since 2006, members of the Xplosion have helped produce football clinics for kids in Clayton County, a Football 101 class for moms and cheerleading coaches and other recreational programming.

NEW STADIUM/NEW NAME: Changes for 2011 also include a team renaming to the Atlanta Ravens. The change will help align one of Atlanta’s top women’s sports teams with the other professional organizations in the area.  

“This year's focus will include team image, community connection and corporate partnerships, " said Rory Edwards, CFO of Georgia Training Alliance. "The re-branded Atlanta Ravens may have a new name and look but the same work ethic, professionalism and style of football will be a consistent part of our organization."


THE XPLOSION/RAVENS are a full-contact women’s football  team which boast a strong history including a National Championship (2006), four division titles (2010, 2007, 2006, 2005) and two representatives sent to participate in the first-ever TEAM USA (2010). The Atlanta Xplosion/Atlanta Ravens is managed by Georgia Training Alliance; for more information visit www.atlantaxplosion.com or follow us at www.twitter.com/atlantaxplosion.
