With “The Home Team,” a journalist-turned-filmmaker explores Mercedes-Benz Stadium’s impact on Vine City and English Avenue
At some point every journalist comes across a story that deserves more space and attention than the assignment permits. For Camille Pendley, that story was the plight of the residents of Vine City and English Avenue, two of the city’s poorest neighborhoods—which sit across the street from the country’s newest and grandest cathedral to sports, the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
It all came down to this. Two years of planning and preparation, a week of concerts, parties, award ceremonies, charity events, and press conferences—all to culminate in one of the biggest and most-talked about sporting events in the country. Browse our photo gallery of game day photos.

What does it take to host a Super Bowl?

The event will mark Atlanta’s third Super Bowl and the first in 19 years. Let’s hope for zero freak ice storms this time.
On a chilly and wet Monday morning, fans took to downtown Atlanta to celebrate Atlanta United as the 2018 MLS Cup champions. Here's a photo gallery of what we saw along the parade route. (Feel free to chant along as you browse.)
The curse has been lifted. In just their second season, Atlanta United defeated the Portland Timbers 2-0 to bring home the MLS Cup. Just before the victory parade began Monday morning, we stepped outside our downtown office to speak to United fans about what the championship means to them and to the city.
