GWCCA Partners with WSB-TV for Live Broadcast of Georgia Dome Implosion

ATLANTA –  (October 31, 2017) In response to an outpouring of interest from around the country to view the November 20 demolition of the Georgia Dome, the Georgia World Congress Center Authority(GWCCA) has partnered with ABC affiliate WSB-TV to make the event available to as many Georgians – and Dome fans around the world – as possible.

Due to the required restricted zone around the Dome and accompanying road closures, there will not be a public viewing area available. WSB-TV’s wide reach, paired with its large variety of digital viewing options, ensures viewers everywhere can take part in this historical event.

“Out of an abundance of caution, we are asking the community for their support in ensuring roadways around the campus are as clear as possible,” commented Frank Poe, executive director of the GWCCA. “Detour routes around the 220-acre campus will reroute traffic away from the Georgia Dome and out of viewable range.”

WSB-TV’s live viewing options include:

The event will also be live streamed on the following platforms:

  • The Georgia Dome’s official Facebook page
  • Atlanta Falcons’ official website, com
  • Mercedes-Benz Stadium’s official website, com
  • Atlanta United’s official website, com

GWCCA has a long history with WSB-TV’s local programming team who has broadcasted the annual 4th of July Celebration in Centennial Olympic Park for the past 5 years.
