- 2022 – Sept. 5 (Labor Day) vs. Clemson – Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game

“I’m excited for Georgia Tech, our student-athletes and our fans to have the opportunity to showcase our football program annually in one of the most recognizable and state-of-the-art facilities in the world, Mercedes-Benz Stadium. An annual series at Mercedes-Benz Stadium helps us meet several objectives for the future of our program, including further establishing ourselves as a premier brand in the Atlanta sports culture, giving our student-athletes the opportunity to perform in one of the NFL’s top stadiums and providing our fans with an ultra-modern gameday experience. I’m grateful to extend the outstanding partnerships that we enjoy with AMB Sports & Entertainment, the Atlanta Falcons and the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game and look forward to bringing the great tradition of Georgia Tech football to Mercedes-Benz Stadium.” – Todd Stansbury, Georgia Tech director of athletics
“The city of Atlanta goes hand-in-hand with the brand of Georgia Tech football, so taking advantage of the opportunity to play in Atlanta’s premier sports venue on an annual basis is a great development for our program. Being able to play the majority of our home games in the greatest setting in all of college football, Bobby Dodd Stadium, while also having the opportunity to showcase our program in one of the finest facilities in the entire world – located nine-tenths of a mile from our campus – each season is a win-win and will be a unique feature of Georgia Tech football. It will be great motivation for our team, exciting for our fans and a great selling point for recruits to play on a stage as big as Mercedes-Benz Stadium.” – Geoff Collins, Georgia Tech football head coach
“We are excited to announce our partnership with Georgia Tech to host one of their marquee games at Mercedes-Benz Stadium over the next five years. We look forward to hosting Georgia Tech fans from across the region and giving them a world-class guest experience.” – Steve Cannon, CEO – AMB Group
“Capping off opening weekend with a rivalry like this will put an exclamation point on the start of the season. There’s a lot of excitement around the Georgia Tech program right now. A big-time game with a top-ranked team like Clemson and the backdrop of the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game will be the highlight of the weekend.” – Gary Stokan, CEO and President – Peach Bowl, Inc.
Located less than one mile from Georgia Tech’s Midtown Atlanta campus, Mercedes-Benz Stadium opened in 2017 and is one of the world’s most premier sports venues. In addition to being home of the Falcons and the 2018 Major League Soccer champion Atlanta United, Mercedes-Benz Stadium also hosted Super Bowl LIII and the 2018 College Football Playoff championship game and will be the site of the 2020 NCAA Final Four (with Georgia Tech serving as the host institution).
