Super Bowl LIII will be held on Feb. 3, 2019, at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
This will be Atlanta’s third Super Bowl after the Georgia Dome hosted Super Bowl XXVIII on Jan. 30, 1994 (Dallas Cowboys vs. Buffalo Bills) and Super Bowl XXXIV on Jan. 30, 2000 (St. Louis Rams vs. Tennessee Titans.)
Mercedes-Benz Stadium, located at 1 AMB Drive NW Atlanta, GA 30313, is on the East-West MARTA rail line and is served directly by two stations: GWCC/Philips Arena CNN Center Station and the Vine City Station.
The stadium is part of a popular downtown Atlanta area that includes Centennial Olympic Park, Philips Arena and the Georgia World Congress Center. It’s also an easy walk from Five Points and Peachtree Center.
10-day Super Bowl festival planned
The big game will be the finale of 10-day celebration that will feature an array of events covering a wide area of downtown within walking distance of the stadium.
Super Bowl Live (a fan festival with concerts and other activities) will be held at Centennial Olympic Park, which was built for the 1996 Olympics and has undergone renovation in preparation for the Super Bowl. Nearby, the Super Bowl Experience (an interactive theme park) will be held at the Georgia World Congress Center. The NFL plans to set up the massive Super Bowl media center in the GWCC.
