Atlanta Falcons single game tickets go on sale Wednesday at 10 a.m.
Tickets can be purchased online by visiting www.atlantafalcons.com/tickets or through Ticketmaster.
“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 Wednesday.
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 has the best home record in the NFC during that stretch.
In 2012, head coach Mike 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.
Atlanta’s offseason was full of moves to fill needs along the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. The Falcons signed veterans Steven Jackson and 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 draft.
