FCF to Play All Games in Brand New, State-of-the-Art Entertainment Venue in the Heart of Atlanta
ATLANTA, GA (February 1, 2022) – Fan Controlled Football (FCF) the only professional sports league that empowers fans to make the key decisions for their favorite team, including calling all the plays in real-time, today announced Pullman Yards at the iconic Pratt Pullman District as the league’s home for Season v2.0.
Designed as a hub for sports and entertainment, the new state-of-the-art 1,500 seat site, totaling more than 85,000 square feet, will be the home for FCF throughout the league’s entire second season which takes-the-field on April 16.
To bring this live-sports production to life, FCF has once again teamed up with Crazy Legs Productions, the Atlanta-based full-service content creation company that also produced the league’s captivating inaugural season, which took place at the Infinite Energy Center in Duluth, GA.
The new venue design will provide all FCF fans with a captivating and intimate sports-viewing experience where everyone’s a VIP, and closer to all the game action like never before experienced in professional football. The venue will include a mix of priority seating, luxury suites and field-level lounges, along with the fan’s ability to watch action on the practice fields as players prep for the game. To help provide a strong taste of Atlanta flavor, the FCF and Pullman Yards will be working with local chefs, restaurants, musicians, artists and organizations for providing unique food, beverage, entertainment and interactive experiences at the venue on gameday.
Located just east of downtown Atlanta, Pullman Yards has become a creative cultural destination for filmmakers, the arts community, and the beating heart of the Pratt-Pullman District. The 27-acre, 12-building property has produced some of this generation’s most memorable cultural events including Hollywood’s Baby Driver, Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and Fast and Furious 5, not to mention countless television shows, art exhibitions and music videos.
Tickets for FCF Season v2.0 will officially go on sale in the coming weeks. For more information and to secure your tickets in advance, fans can go to www.FCF.io/tickets to request an invite to the league’s pre-order ticket list.
