ATLANTA – With just 84 days until the start of the 2017 football season, Georgia State unveiled its stadium logo and twitter handle on Thursday. The Panthers will begin the inaugural season in Georgia State Stadium on Aug. 31, facing Tennessee State at 7 p.m.
The inaugural season logo features the stadium and skyline of Atlanta, including the symbolic Olympic Flame and State Capitol Building located just blocks away from the stadium. Georgia State Stadium originally opened as Centennial Olympic Stadium in 1996 before the Atlanta Braves converted it to Turner Field in 1997.
Following the Braves move, Georgia State University purchased the property in January and is in the conversion process into a 22,000-seat football stadium for 2017. The stadium will host Georgia State football, graduation, concerts and much more.
Fans will be able to follow the progress of the stadium and get up-to-date information about other events going on at Georgia State Stadium by following @GSUStadium on Twitter.
Season tickets are now on-sale for the inaugural season in Georgia State Stadium. Fans can purchase tickets by visiting GeorgiaStateSports.com/Tix.
