The Atlanta Falcons will hold their fourth annual team scrimmage this year at Norcross High School in Norcross, Ga. Kia Motors Friday Night Lights will take place on Friday, Aug. 5.
The Falcons will take the field at 7:30 p.m. with gates opening at 6 p.m.
"Kia Motors Friday Night Lights" is open to the public and admission is free. This grassroots event includes a fan fest with interactive inflatable games, sponsor activation, a post event autograph session and a spectacular fireworks show. During the live scrimmage, several players including the Falcons quarterbacks, and certain position players will be mic'd so fans can get an "under the helmet look" at the action on the field.
The Falcons have traveled from their Flowery Branch facility during training camp to conduct "Friday Night Lights" scrimmages at North Gwinnett High School in 2010, Brookwood High School in 2009 and Mill Creek High in 2008. Each of the three previous scrimmages have been played in front of capacity crowds.
"This is a special event for not only our fans, but for our players as well," said Smith. "Our guys love going back to their roots and playing under the lights at a high school field every year. This event provides us the opportunity to reach out to the community and give our fans a chance to get up close and personal with our team as we prepare for the 2011 season."
