FALCONS STADIUM

ATLANTA, GA

For two decades the Atlanta Falcons have played the Georgia Dome, one of the few domed stadiums in the NFL. In 2011 the Falcons announced plans that they would begin exploring options of building a new stadium as ownership wants a new stadium that provides amenities that at newly constructed NFL stadiums. At a cost of $1.2 Billon, the Falcons are teaming with the Georgia World Congress Center Authority (GWCCA) to build a retractable roof stadium. In December 2012 the GWCCA board approved terms for the new Atlanta Falcons stadium. The GWCCA will own the stadium, the Falcons and the NFL will operate the stadium under a 30-year agreement and contribute $800 million to $1 billion including any cost overruns towards stadium construction and the city of Atlanta and Fulton County will contribute $200 million through a hotel tax. In September 2013 the Falcons announced that their new stadium will be constructed south of the Georgia Dome. It will not only be the home of the Falcons, but the annual SEC Championship Game, the Chick-fil-A Bowl and potential Final Four basketball games.

Construction of the Falcons new stadium is slated to begin in April 2014 and completed in March 2017. From the outside, the stadium will be one of the most unique stadiums in sports. It will feature a retractable roof in a wing shape, similar to a falcon, opening in an oval shape. The exterior walls of the facility will be constructed of translucent glass that will allow natural light into it. Windows will open throughout the concourses and a large window in the east endzone will provide a view of the Atlanta skyline to truly make the stadium experience an outdoor experience. The stadium will have a seating capacity of approximately 70,000 including 180 luxury suites and 7,500 club seats. It will feature a 62,000 square-foot HD video/scoreboard within the roof opening.
