The Georgia Dome, the largest cable-supported domed stadium in the world, opened in 1992. Located in downtown Atlanta, the Dome is the home venue for the Atlanta Falcons, host to Super Bowl XXVII in 1994, host of the gymnastics and basketball events for the 1996 Olympic Games and host to the Super Bowl XXXIV in 2000.

Annually, the Dome hosts the Atlanta Football Classic, the SEC Football Championship, and the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. The Dome is also equipped to handle large non-sporting events which include everything from major trade shows to concerts by such entertainers as the Rolling Stones and Backstreet Boys to religious events by such ministers as Billy Graham and T.D. Jakes.

On July 29, 2006, the DCI Coltrin & Associates Southeastern Championship was held at the dome, hosting the largest crowd ever to see a DCI regional event (over 15,000)[citation needed].
