Super Bowl LIII

By the Numbers: What Atlanta can expect as Super Bowl LIII comes to town

What does it take to host a Super Bowl? The host committee is expecting a wave of more than 1 million visitors over the 10-day hoopla that culminates in the Big Game on February 3 at the 75,000-seat Mercedes-Benz Stadium. 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.

An eclectic and energetic mix of groups are joining forces to combat a common opponent: sex trafficking in metro Atlanta.

Atlanta’s Super Bowl dreams hinge on a $10 million tax break

When the Panthers and Broncos kick off on Sunday, more than 70,000 people will pack inside Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, for Super Bowl 50. Ticket-buyers will have paid anywhere from $850 to $3,000 for face-value tickets—likely more if they got them second-hand. Though the price of admission is steep, attendees at least get a small discount: Tickets are tax-free.

The Dirty Birds made it to the Super Bowl

After a 7–9 season in 1997, no one gave coach Dan Reeves’s 1998 squad a chance. But on the legs of running back Jamal Anderson—who rushed for 1,846 yards, nearly twice as much as he ever had or would again—and a smothering defense, the Falcons rattled off a nine-game winning streak to end the season a franchise-best 14–2 atop the NFC West.
