Facts

  • Following the 1996 Olympic Games, Centennial Olympic Stadium was converted from an 85,000-seat track and field venue to the intimate 48,000-seat Turner Field, home of the Atlanta Braves.
  • The stadium design established an architectural precedent for "special event" facilities.
  • The stadium also hosted the 10th Paralympiad. Assistant U.S. Attorney General Deval L. Patrick called it "the most accessible stadium in the world.".
  • In the post-Olympic conversion, the northern end of the stadium (with approximately 35,000 seats) was demolished to accommodate an entry plaza, interactive game area, ticket office, a Braves Clubhouse Store and a two-level pub. Lower level outfield seating and the private 755 Club completed the redevelopment.
  • Replaced Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium as the home field of the Atlanta Braves.
  • After the Braves left Turner Field for SunTrust Park in nearby Cobb County, Georgia State University acquired the stadium to be used as the home of the Georgia State University Panthers football team.
