For those Clemson football fans living in the Atlanta area, you will get to see the Tigers’ 2022 scheduled trip to Atlanta at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Georgia Tech, in conjunction with the AMB Group (the parent company of the stadium and the Falcons) and the Peach Bowl, officially announced Tuesday the Clemson at Georgia Tech game in 2022 will be moved from Tech’s Bobby Dodd Stadium.
Clemson was expecting the 2020 game to be played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, but it was Georgia Tech’s home game and it decided to move the 2022 game instead.
On Tuesday Georgia Tech announced it will be playing Notre Dame at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Nov. 14, 2020.
According to the release, Clemson and Tech are scheduled to meet at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Sept. 5, Labor Day night, in 2022.
Clemson and Georgia Tech will open the 2019 season on Thursday night, Aug. 24, at Death Valley in Clemson, as the featured game to launch the ACC Network.
According to The Atlanta Journal Constitution Georgia Tech is in a financial pinch and expressed interest in moving some of their home games from historic Bobby Dodd Stadium to the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Clemson and Georgia Tech have not played a scheduled regular season game on a neutral site since 1899 when the two met in Greenville, S.C. The Tigers won that game 41-5.
