Chick-fil-A Bowl at the Georgia Dome Address: 1 Georgia Dome Dr NW, Atlanta, Georgia, 30313
The Chick-fil-A Bowl is at the Georgia Dome in downtown Atlanta, near the University Center and the Georgia State Capitol. The stadium was opened in 1992 and is home to the Atlanta Falcons and the Georgia State football team. It has three levels and has a capacity of over 71,000.
The stadium is one of the last iconic bowl-style venues left in the country and produces great views from every seat. The capacity of the Chick-fil-A Bowl is approximately 94,392, and that split into two “levels” though one look at the venue and it looks like just one big section all the way from the field to the last row. The home sideline is by sections 3-7, while visitors sideline is in front of sections 17-21.
Sections 111-120 put you at field level right behind the home team sideline. They go up to row 34. Prime Seating is Sections 114-117 and 134-137. Sections 104-107 and 124-127 are in the endzones and go up to row 36.
Still a great view and close to the action at the 200 level, and while Sections 217-226 and 244-251 are considered club seating, the mezzanine endzone and corner sections will give you a great bang for your buck.
The upper deck of the Georgia Dome, Sections 304-317 and 330-339 will be the most inexpensive seats in the stadium. Sections 346-349 and 320-323 are considered Upper Prime seating as they are the nearest to the 50-yard line.

Awesome Game Every Time Highly recommend this ACC vs. SEC matchup. The LSU/Clemson game was one for the ages, and the Georgia Dome is a great football venue with awesome hotels within walking distance. We took a huge group and TicketCity hooked us up! January 12, 2013
CHIK-FIL-A tHIS IS A GREAT GAME TO GO SEE....GOOD TEAMS PLAY IN THIS GAME!!!!! November 25, 2011
Great games. The upcoming games in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl will be great! Tennessee and N.C. State both have a lot of returning players after some rebuilding and injury issues. The Clemson/Auburn game is always a good contest. It is great to see the ACC and SEC go at it. Some people think these are not the greatest games, but I certainly am looking forward to both of them and plan to be there. February 22, 2012
