Rise Up and Celebrate Falcons Friday:In celebration of the game, fans across Atlanta and the state of Georgia are encouraged to Rise Up and support the team this Friday by wearing Falcons apparel to work. Local businesses and organizations are also encouraged to help turn the town red by changing external lighting where possible. Fulton County has also issued a resolution officially declaring Friday, January 20 as "Falcons Friday" throughout the county.

New Atlanta Falcons App: Make sure to download the new Falcons app to get live play-by-play, stats and content during the NFC Championship Game and all Falcons games. iOS:, or Android: Please note that the old version of the app will not have current team or game information.

Get in your seat early: Falcons fans attending the game on Sunday should arrive early as the game is sold out. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:05pm EST and gates will open at 1:00pm EST. Due to a road race planned downtown in the morning that will result in several road closures, and the current weather forecast calling for rain, please anticipate potential delays when planning your commute to the Dome. We encourage fans to use WAZE for directions to specific parking lots as this app will include the most up-to-date road closures.

Tailgate / Fan Rally Options: All fans are invited to the "Atlanta Falcons Rise Up Rally," a free pep rally at Atlantic Station's Central Park on Saturday, January 21 from 2:00pm – 4:00pm EST. Freddie Falcon and the Falcons Cheerleaders will join Falcons' Legends Jerious Norwood and Mike Haynes for autographs and photo opportunities. Attendees will receive discounts to activities and have the opportunity to win various Falcons prizes. Two hours of complimentary garage parking will be provided. In the event of rain, the festivities will continue inside at the Steel Mill Event Venue at Atlantic Station.

Parking Recommendations: We strongly recommend purchasing a parking pass prior to game day as most lots around the Georgia Dome will be sold out on game day. Parking options are available through ParkWhiz. Go to to view parking availability.

Easy transportation options: MARTA and Uber are reliable options to get to the game. MARTA has two stations within walking distance of the Dome, and fans can enjoy a new Uber pick-up and drop-off location just yards away from the Dome.

Avoid purchasing counterfeit tickets: Due to the increased demand for tickets, there is a potential danger of counterfeit tickets being re-sold in the secondary market. Fans interested in purchasing tickets should visit or to secure 100% authentic and guaranteed seats.
