Georgia Tech announces five annual games to be played in Mercedes-Benz Stadium
It’s a new era of Georgia Tech football under Geoff Collins and the Yellow Jacket program is trying to do anything it can to gain the support of its hometown city.
The triple option offense is a thing of the past for Georgia Tech and the program continues to attempt to make big moves to gain some momentum moving forward under its first-year coach. The latest announcement is an annual game inside Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
So far, a total of five Georgia Tech games will be played in Mercedes-Benz Stadium with three of the opponents set. The remaining two opponents will be revealed at a later date.
Here is the schedule announced by Georgia Tech:
- 2020 – Nov. 14 vs. Notre Dame
- 2021 – Date/opponent TBA
- 2022 – Sept. 5 (Labor Day) vs. Clemson – Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game
- 2023 – Date opponent/TBA
- 2024 – Oct. 19 vs. Notre Dame
Following the announcement, Collins offered up the following comment in a prepared statement:
“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.”
