No fewer than six titles to their name
Founded by philanthropist and businessman Rankin Smith, the Atlanta Falcons joined the National Football League as an expansion team in 1965. Five years later they joined the New Orleans Saints, the San Francisco 49ers and the Los Angeles Rams in the newly created AFC West, going on to win the division in 1990 and then again in 1998. That same year, the team nicknamed The Dirty Birds also reached their first Super Bowl in an encounter against the Denver Broncos, while in 2002 they moved to the NFC South alongside the Carolina Panthers, the New Orleans Saints and the Tampa Bay Bucs. The Falcons added a further four division titles to their trophy cabinet over the next 15 years and in 2016 played against the New England Patriots in their second appearance at a Super Bowl. If you haven’t yet seen the men in black and red take to the field, then take a look at the various Atlanta Falcons tickets now on offer at StubHub.
The multi-purpose Mercedes-Benz Stadium
Having previously played their home games at the Atlanta-Falcon County Stadium until 1991 and then the Georgia Dome until 2016, the Atlanta Falcons relocated again in 2017 to the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, a venue famous for having the world’s largest video board. Linebacker Deion Jones, defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, quarterback Matt Ryan and wide receiver Julio Jones are just a few of the key players who have pulled on the black and red uniform there, while Dan Quinn served as the head coach during their second relocation. The 71,000-capacity multi-purpose venue also hosted the 2019 Super Bowl game between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams and serves as home to Major League Soccer team Atlanta United FC. Fans heading to the stadium on matchday should look forward to an incredible atmosphere buoyed by the likes of the franchise’s cheerleading squad and the longtime official mascot Freddie Falcon.
