Single-game tickets for the 2013 season went on sale Wednesday morning and supplies are going quickly. The Sept. 29 game against the Patriots has sold out, and the ticket office expects the rest of the 2013 season to sell out by Wednesday evening.
There are still two-game packages on sale using all games with the exception of the Patriots game. Tickets for the Nov. 21 Saints game and Dec. 15 Redskins game are extremely limited. There are still limited seats available for games against the Rams, Seahawks, Jets, Buccaneers and Panthers.
"Our fans continue to demonstrate their loyalty and passion for our football team," Falcons President and CEO Richard J. McKay said. "We greatly appreciate them and what they do for our football team each home football Sunday at the Georgia Dome."
In addition to single game tickets, two game ticket packages will also be available for purchase on Wednesday. Verizon Wireless Club Seating and Game Day Suites are available now, and can be purchased by calling 855-222-FANS (3267) or at www.atlantafalcons.com/tickets.
Atlanta looks to continue its success under head coach Mike Smith in 2013. Over the last five seasons, the Falcons have compiled a 56-24 record, including a 34-9 (including playoffs) mark in front of the raucous Georgia Dome crowd. Atlanta's .791 winning percentage (including playoffs) at home ranks in the NFL and it is the best home record in the NFC during that stretch. In 2012, Smith set franchise records for career wins and winning percentage (56-24, .700), passing Dan Reeves who went 49-59-1 (.454) in seven seasons with the club. Additionally, Smith's 56 wins in his first five seasons as a head coach are the second most among any first-time head coach in NFL history.
The Falcons finished the 2012 season with a 14-4 overall record and hosted the NFC Championship Game for the first time in franchise history. Smith earned NFL Coach of the Year honors from Sporting News for the third time in his career, while QB Matt Ryan enjoyed his best season, setting single season franchise records for passing yards (4,719), pass attempts (615), completions (422), touchdown passes (32), and 300-yard games (7) en route to his second career Pro Bowl selection. Additionally, Ryan's 56 career wins are the most by any quarterback in his first five seasons in NFL history.
Atlanta resigned future Hall of Famer TE Tony Gonzalez during the offseason after he caught 93 passes for 930 yards with eight touchdowns in 2012. Gonzalez was selected to the Pro Bowl for the 13th time in his career and he currently ranks second in NFL history with 1,242 career receptions while his 103 career touchdown catches are the sixth most in League annals.
Atlanta's 2013 offseason was full of moves to fill needs along the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. The Falcons signed veterans RB Steven Jackson and DE Osi Umenyiora during free agency then landed CB Desmond Trufant, CB Robert Alford, DE Malliciah Goodman, TE Levine Toilolo, DE Stansly Maponga, S Kemal Ishmael, S Zeke Motta, and QB Sean Renfree in the NFL Draft.
