ATLANTA — Atlanta United Saturday announced that it has signed Matías Gallardo to a Short-Term Agreement for Saturday’s match at St. Louis City SC.

This is Gallardo’s second Short-Term Agreement this season.

Per 2024 MLS Roster Rules and Regulations, a club may sign a player, age 25 or younger during the league season, from its affiliate (MLS NEXT Pro) to a maximum of four Short-Term Agreements (up to four-day contracts) each season (maximum of 16 days). An individual player may be included on up to four MLS league season match rosters each season, however, that player may appear in no more than two MLS league season matches. An individual player may appear in any number of non-league games during the terms of his four Short-Term Agreements.

Gallardo signed with Atlanta United 2 on July 27, 2023. The Buenos Aires, Argentina native has appeared in 11 matches, nine starts, for ATL UTD 2 this season and notched an assist in the club’s match against Carolina Core FC on May 8.

Gallardo joined Atlanta United from Argentine Primera División side River Plate, where he worked his way through the Academy ranks before he made his First Team debut as a second half substitute in a 4-3 friendly win against Chilean team Universidad de Chile on March 25, 2023.
