Georgia Dome

Architecture & Buildings

North America, United States, Fulton County

The Georgia Dome is a domed stadium located in Atlanta, Georgia, between downtown to the east and Vine City to the west. It is primarily the home stadium for the NFL Atlanta Falcons and the NCAA Division I Georgia State Panthers football team. It is owned and operated by the State of Georgia as part of the Georgia World Congress Center. The Georgia Dome was the largest domed structure in the world until 1999, when the Millennium Dome in London was completed. The Dome is accessible by rail via MARTA's Blue and Green lines, which service the nearby Dome/GWCC/Philips Arena/CNN Center and Vine City stations. It is the 11th-oldest stadium in the NFL - 16 other venues that were hosting NFL teams at the time of the Dome's opening have either since closed or merely lost their NFL tenants.
