Google Sheets concatenate with a space

Notice that the city and team names have been concatenated with a space.

If we’d like, we can also add additional text to any location in the string.

For example, we can include “Team: ” in the CONCATENATE function:

=CONCATENATE("Team: ", A2, " ", B2)

Feel free to include as many strings and as many variables as you’d like in the CONCATENATE function, each separated by a comma.
