The new logo (above) features a silhouette of the Atlanta skyline and commemorates the team’s first year in the new stadium, which is set to open with the Panthers’ matchup with Tennessee State at 7 p.m. on Aug. 31. The stadium’s Twitter handle will be @GSUStadium.

When the conversion of the stadium is complete, the stadium should seat 22,000 people. In addition to Panther football games, the stadium will host graduation, concerts, and other events.
