The Georgia Dome was a domed stadium located in Atlanta, Georgia, United States, between downtown to the east and Vine City to the west. It is primarily the home stadium for the NFL's Atlanta Falcons and the NCAA Division I FCS (later FBS) Georgia State Panthers football team; the Georgia Dome also served as an interim home of the NBA's Atlanta Hawks between 1997 and 1999 after the Omni Coliseum was demolished and Philips Arena was under construction. It is owned and operated by the State of Georgia as part of the Georgia World Congress Center Authority. The Georgia Dome was the largest domed structure in the world until 1999, when London's Millennium Dome was completed.

On the morning of November 20, 2017, the Georgia Dome was imploded with 4,800 pounds (2,200 kg) of explosives. The Georgia Dome's successor, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, was constructed just south of the Georgia Dome site and opened on August 26, 2017.
