Though he was born in Atlanta, he was raised in Chicago, so there is a possibility that he is a supporter of local MLS team Chicago Fire.
Does Kanye West support Atlanta United?
Though the rapper was spotted alongside Atlanta United fans, it is not clear whether he actually supports the club – and may have only been there as he is currently residing in the stadium.
