Mercedes-Benz Stadium: Atlanta’s Host With the Most

By Connect Sports Staff, September 1, 2017

Atlanta’s new Mercedes-Benz Stadium is the home of the Falcons and Atlanta United FC, but much more. Take Labor Day weekend, for example. On Aug. 31, the Falcons played a preseason game there against the Jaguars, followed by two premier college football games: Alabama vs. Florida State and Tennessee vs. Georgia Tech. The world-class facility has already been awarded the 2018 College Football Playoff Championship, 2019 Super Bowl and 2020 Final Four.

The Super Bowl returns to Atlanta, but that’s hardly the only sporting event to watch for in 2019.
