Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl01.15.2018
OrthoAtlanta was honored to serve as the Official Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Partner of the 2017 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. The game was held on New Years Day, January 1, 2018 in the new, state-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. The nationally-televised game was played in front of tens of thousands of fans. An Atlanta institution since 1968, the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl celebrated its 50th anniversary season. It is the ninth-oldest college football game in the country and is one of the six elite bowls in the nation.
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.
To commemorate over twenty years of service to the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl during its 50 Year Golden Anniversary, OrthoAtlanta brought the excitement of the game to its patients, staff and the Atlanta community at-large with a series of local events and activities. OrthoAtlanta employees marched in the game day Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Parade sponsored by Lions Club International. In the weeks leading up to game day, OrthoAtlanta held an online contest awarding one lucky winner two (2) tickets to attend the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. Other prizes included tickets to top Atlanta attractions including the Georgia Aquarium and the College Football Hall of Fame and Chick-fil-A Fan Experience. OrthoAtlanta pre-game and game-day activities are captured on the OrthoAtlanta Facebook page.
