The “Back Porch,” sponsored by Harrah’s Cherokee Casino, will be ready on opening day for fans to socialize, eat and, of course, cheer on the Braves. 

The new space is billed as a “laid-back patio.” The entire area is covered and can fit up to 150 people, making it a good spot for groups to gather on game day.
