Atlanta Falcons Panoramic Picture - Georgia Dome Panorama
This panorama of the Atlanta Falcons competing against the New Orleans Saints commemorates the Falcons' last regular season game at the Georgia Dome. Located in downtown Atlanta, the Georgia Dome opened in 1992 as the largest covered stadium in the world by capacity. It accommodates 74,228 fans for football and up to 80,000 for other events. The facility was built at a cost of $214 million and was one of the largest state-funded construction projects in state history. The Falcons will move to the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in 2017, which will feature a retractable roof inspired by the oculus in the ancient Roman Pantheon.
