WATCH: End of an era as Georgia Dome is demolished
The Georgia Dome is gone.
On Monday at 7:30 a.m. ET, the stadium that opened in 1992 was leveled, giving way to Mercedes-Benz Stadium, home to the Atlanta Falcons of the NFL and SEC Championship Game on Dec. 2.
You can see the Georgia Dome’s final moments here:
In just 25 years, the Georgia Dome accomplished a lot. It’s the only venue to host the Super Bowl, Olympics and Men’s Final Four.
It’s been a landmark for the SEC.
After the first two SEC Championship Games were played at Legion Field in Birmingham, Ala., in 1992 and 1993, the game moved to the Georgia Dome in 1994. The game has been played there every year since and when Georgia meets the winner between Alabama and Auburn in the Iron Bowl, Mercedes-Benz Stadium will host its first title game.
