The Atlanta Beat, a women's pro soccer team, won't play its 2012 schedule after its league announced a temporary suspension of this year's schedule.

Women's Professional Soccer announced the suspension of the season amid a legal dispute with an ousted owner. The league said in a statement that it hopes to resume in 2013.

The Atlanta Beat played home games in the 8,300-seat Kennesaw State University Soccer Stadium in Cobb County, northwest of Atlanta.

Fitz Johnson, the Georgia team's owner and general manager, said he will make every effort to bring back the team in 2013.

Other teams in the league include the Boston Breakers; Philadelphia Independence; Western New York Flash; and Sky Blue FC, which played home games in New Jersey.
