Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game01.15.2018
OrthoAtlanta and the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game are two proud Atlanta traditions. OrthoAtlanta proudly serves as the official orthopedic and sports medicine partner to the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game, a role it has held since the inaugural game in 2008. In 2017, two sold-out games were the first college football games played in the new, state-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Saturday, September 2 game paired the Florida State Seminoles against the Alabama Crimson Tide. The Monday, September 4, Labor Day game matched the University of Tennessee Volunteers against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.
Matching top college football teams in a neutral-site, the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game is the nation’s longest running kickoff game and has been nationally televised on the opening weekend of the college football season since its inception. The Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game boasts an average attendance of 67,645 and has been watched on television by 47.4 million viewers.
As the official orthopedic and sports medicine partner of the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Games each year, OrthoAtlanta works largely behind the scenes to provide medical services for the teams, their coaches 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 the practices, and working in training rooms with team medical staff.
