The 2013 season will be the Atlanta Silverbacks's seventeenth season of existence, and their third consecutive season playing in the North American Soccer League, the second division of the American soccer pyramid.

Background[edit]

The Atlanta Silverbacks' 2012 season was a tale of two halves. In their first 15 games they only managed 8 points, through 1 win, 5 draws and 9 losses. In their final 13 games they gather 22 points in 6 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses (a league best).

They had mixed results in U.S. Open Cup, winning their first match against fourth division opponent Georgia Revolution 1-0. Then losing to MLS side Seattle Sounders 5-1 a week later.

On May 2, 2012 first-year head coach Alex Pineda Chacón was replaced by interim head coach Eric Wynalda. Wynalda announced Brian Haynes would replace him as head coach.
