To celebrate the official kickoff of football season, the Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee has released a Super Bowl LIII hype video, showcasing Atlanta as a city ready for its moment on the world stage.
The goal is for Atlantans – football fans or not – to feel the excitement of Super Bowl LIII coming to our city.
Also, the Atlanta City Council unanimously passed the “Pour until Four” measure last month in preparation for the Super Bowl. City of Atlanta officials are preparing for massive crowds invading downtown and the surrounding neighborhoods by extending the sale of alcohol at bars from 2:30am to 4am that week.
Super Bowl LIII, the 53rd Super Bowl and the 49th National Football League (NFL) championship game since the AFL–NFL merger, will decide the league champion for the 2018 NFL season.
The game is scheduled to be played on February 3, 2019, at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. This will be the third Super Bowl in Atlanta, having previously hosted Super Bowl XXVIII in 1994 and Super Bowl XXXIV in 2000.
Atlanta Police Deputy Chief Scott Kreher will be the incident commander during the Super Bowl, in charge of safety and security. He told Klaus police will work 12-hour shifts, and officers from several nearby departments will help out.
I think we’re good. Obviously, we’re going to partner with MARTA and ride share to make sure everybody gets home safe. But we hope that everybody’ll have a great time and go home at 4.
