Atlanta, GA (CBS46) The Portland Timbers will take on Atlanta United Saturday evening at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The heavily anticipated game has drawn the attention of many including Atlanta's Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler.

Ahead of the game, Bottoms and Wheeler egged one another on in a friendly bet on Twitter. What's being wagered? Well, aside from bragging rights and the coveted MLS Cup trophy, the losing mayor has to wear the winning team's jersey for an entire day.

Mayor Bottoms responded with her own video full of Atlanta pride and belief in the home team's ability to get the job done.

This will mark Atlanta United's first time at the MLS Cup and the Portland Timbers second appearance in the last four years.

The game starts at 8 p.m.
