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 season.

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.
