South - Atlanta Falcons - Georgia
One Georgia Dome Drive
Atlanta, GA 30313
Name: Georgia Dome
Home Team: Atlanta Falcons
PLAYING SURFACE: ARTIFICIAL
YEAR OPENED: 1992
Home of the Atlanta Falcons since 1992, the Georgia
Dome is the worlds largest cable supported stadium.
Beginning in 1984, a new stadium for the Falcons
was discussed. The Falcons had been playing at Atlanta
Fulton County Stadium since their inception in 1966.
The Falcons wanted a new football only facility,
because they had to share Atlanta Fulton County
Stadium with the Atlanta Braves (MLB). By 1988,
talks had intensified on building a new stadium,
and in 1989 approval came from the state, the Atlanta
City Council, and Fulton County Commission to build
a dome stadium. Ground breaking ceremonies took
place on November 22, 1989. The Georgia Dome was
completed in time for the start of the 1992 NFL
The Falcons played their first game at the Georgia
Dome on September 6, 1992. Over 70,000 fans filled
the Georgia Dome to see the Falcons play. Three
tiers of teal seats circle the entire gridiron.
The roof is made up of Teflon and fiberglass. Every
seat from the lower deck to the upper deck has a
great view of the field. The Georgia Dome has many
amenities including several food courts, the In-Zone
Restaurant, Kickers Sports Bar, Millers Lodge, over
5,000 club seats, and over 200 luxury suites. After
the 2002 season, the surface of the Georgia Dome
was changed from Astroturf to Fieldturf. The Georgia
Dome has hosted Super Bowls XXXIV and XXVIII. It
also hosts collegiate bowl games, was the home of
the Atlanta Hawks (NBA, 1998-’99), hosted
several Olympic events in 1996, and is scheduled
to host the NCAA final four in 2007.
