The 2020 football game between Georgia Tech and Notre Dame will be played at Bobby Dodd Stadium on Georgia Tech’s campus, Georgia Tech and AMB Sports + Entertainment (AMBSE) announced on Thursday.
“I’m saddened for this year’s team that they won’t have the opportunity to open our annual series at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, but I’m appreciative of our administration and the leaders at AMB Sports + Entertainment for being so flexible given the unique circumstances of this season,” Georgia Tech head coach Geoff Collins said. “The great news is that instead of a five-year series, we now have a six-year series to host one game each season at Mercedes-Benz Stadium from 2021 through 2026. It’s a great honor for our program to be the only team in college football that is guaranteed to play at least one game every season in the premier football facility in the world, which just happens to be located less than one mile from our campus. It’s an opportunity that our current and future student-athletes are excited about.”
The announcement comes on the heels of the ACC’s release of a modified plan for the 2020 season, which allots 10 conference contests to each ACC school and Notre Dame.
The date and time of the game will be released at a later date by the ACC.
Georgia Tech also announced today that their contract with Mercedes-Benz Stadium has been extended one year. The Yellow Jackets will now host one game per season at Mercedes-Benz Stadium each season from 2021 through 2026.
