GHSA, Falcons to hold media event on Thursday

By AccessWDUN Staff

The Georgia High School Association and the Atlanta Falcons are expected to announce the high school football finals will move back to the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in 2023. 

The two organizations have scheduled a media event at 2 p.m. on Thursday at the Benz in Atlanta to make the announcement.

The GHSA moved the football finals out of Mercedes-Benz Stadium in 2019, citing the cost to rent the stadium.

In 2018, the GHSA paid close to $600,000 to play the seven football title games over two days in the Atlanta stadium.

The football finals have been played at Georgia State Stadium since 2019.
