The Georgia Dome
The Georgia Dome (1992-2017) is a domed stadium currently under demolition located in Atlanta, Georgia, United States, between downtown to the east and Vine City to the west. It was owned and operated by the State of Georgia as part of the Georgia World Congress Center Authority. It served as the home stadium for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League (NFL) and the Georgia State Panthers football team from Georgia State University. Also, it has hosted the Peach Bowl from 1992 until 2016 and the SEC Championship Game from 1994 to 2016. In addition, the Georgia Dome had also hosted several soccer matches since 2009 that have drawn over 50,000 fans. The Georgia Dome was the largest covered stadium in the world by capacity when it opened in 1992, but it has since been surpassed by AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas and by Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
