Atlanta Church Comes to Term with Atlanta Falcons

August 6,2013

The Atlanta Falcons have come to terms to buy Friendship Baptist Church, one of two, which is key for a new stadium in downtown Atlanta. Mayor Kasim Reed said that the church and the team agreed on a $19.5 million deal. The team will now re-open talks with Mt. Vernon Baptist Church.

The team needed the land of the two churches to place the new stadium just south of the Georgia Dome.
