The Philadelphia Atoms are an American professional soccer team based out of Glenside, Pennsylvania that play in the American Soccer League (ASL).[1]

They are named after, and claim the heritage of, the original Philadelphia Atoms that played in the North American Soccer League from 1973 to 1976, and won the league championship in their first season.[2]

In March 2017 the Philadelphia Atoms were given a second life when the newer squad was admitted into the ASL. The Atoms played for the first time in forty-years on April 1, 2017 versus Mass United FC.[3] They currently play at Jean Lenox Stadium on the campus of Arcadia University. The club's colors are blue, white and black.
