Description

Thousands of fans attend each Atlanta Braves home game. Atlanta’s hosting of the 1996 Olympics left the city with Turner Field Stadium located in downtown Atlanta. “In 2013, the Braves announced they were leaving Turner Field for a new stadium to be built in Cobb County, northwest of the city. At the time, Club President John Schuerholz said that Turner Field needed "hundreds of millions of dollars of upgrades.” (Martin, 2016) This presentation will explain the economic impact of the relocation of the Atlanta Brave’s Turner Field in downtown Atlanta to Truist Park of Cobb County Georgia. “As one of the few U.S. sports franchises with publicly traded stock, the Braves are required to disclose financial results that most teams keep private” (Tucker, 2020).
