Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl
OrthoAtlanta proudly serves as the Official Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Partner to the 2018 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. The game will be played on Saturday, December 29, 2018, with a scheduled NOON EST kickoff time in the state-of-the-industry Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. The nationally-televised game, played in front of tens of thousands of fans, is the ninth-oldest college football game in the country and is one of the New Year's Six Bowls selected to host the College Football Playoff.
An Atlanta tradition since 1968, last year, the Peach Bowl celebrated its 50th Anniversary Golden Season, including its 50-year history of traditions and successes as the nation's ninth-oldest bowl organization.
OrthoAtlanta has proudly served in the role of official sports medicine provider to the game for over 20 years. Working largely behind-the-scenes, the medical staff at Atlanta-based OrthoAtlanta provides on-site orthopedic medical services on game day and throughout game week to the players of both teams, their coaches, staff and officials.
OrthoAtlanta physicians serve as the key medical point of contact for the visiting teams while they are in town. They provide 24/7 availability from the time the teams arrive in Atlanta, staying with the teams, traveling to all practices, and working in the training rooms with the team medical staff. In conjunction with the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, OrthoAtlanta hosts a medical team dinner for both teams, allowing them to socialize in a casual setting, a service no other Bowl game provides.
OrthoAtlanta and the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl are two proud Atlanta traditions. OrthoAtlanta brings the excitement of the game to its patients, staff and the Atlanta community with local events and activities. OrthoAtlanta pre-game and game-day activities are captured on the OrthoAtlanta Facebook page.
