Dirty Bird fans live for the starting lineup run onto the field in the middle of shooting flames and heart-thumping music. The Atlanta Falcons play in the National Football Conference (NFC) of the National Football League (NFL); the franchise is one of the NFL’s oldest in the American South and has earned a trip in 1998 to Super Bowl XXXIII. Experience the action all season with Golden Tickets, especially for the battle against rival the New Orleans Saints.
The Falcons began play in 1966 as an expansion team in the old Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. A contest was held to name the new team; after many entries were looked over, the Falcon was the most popular. Their color scheme, red and black, is an homage to the Georgia Bulldogs. The Atlanta Falcons current home is the 71,000-seat Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, an eco-friendly venue with Ancient Greece style retractable roof, the “halo board” video screen, and Window to the City which is a 16-story-high wall of floor-to-ceiling glass providing a view of downtown Atlanta.
Get ready to catch the excitement this season. Join the rest of the Falcoholics in the stands to watch dynamic players and heart-stopping plays. Golden Tickets can get you there!
