About State Farm Arena
The State Farm Sports Arena
The State Farm Sports Arena, the home of the Atlanta Hawks NBA Club, has been around for more than 20 years, but its whopping $192.5 million renovation in 2018 left tongues wagging. Today, the SFA is an other-worldly fan-inspired sports venue that will leave you with memories you won’t be quick to overwrite.
Features of the Renovated Stadium
Located in downtown Atlanta, the arena features the third-largest scoreboard in the NBA and premium and fan-centric dining options with friendly prices. The massive LED video display hangs at the dead center, and it offers an immersive experience that ensures you’re able to follow the full court game regardless of where you sit.
Unlike before, you can now circumnavigate the entire stadium. There are tons of places for standing-room ticket holders to check in on the action while enjoying other amenities of the arena.
Concessions were not left behind in the upgrade, with fan-friendly food pricing being topmost in the amenities fans can enjoy. For just $4, you’ll get a refillable souvenir soda cup with refill stations spread throughout the arena. There are pizza slices for only $4 and hotdogs for $3.
If you’re looking for some fine dining, you can pick from your local favorites, such as B’s Cracklin Barbeque, Old Lady Gang, and J.R. Crickets. Enjoy the Giovanni Di Palma mega area with Gio’s Chicken and Antico pizza depending on what your palette craves.
Finally, in-between or after the action, step into Zac Brown’s Social Club, which has a T/A food section and attractive chandeliers. On the walls, you can drink in the Hawks’ memorabilia.
Enjoying the Show
Enter the SFA, and you’ll immediately understand why games have such a high fan turnout. The energy in the packed stadium is higher than you’ll see in many places. You get to enjoy some rare perks like watching the stars play during the mid-game and post-game interludes. You may be lucky to go home with free t-shirts or bracelets depending on who’s playing or hosting.
It’s easy to see why the state farm arena is booked way into 2020. A few upcoming events include shows by Khalid with Clairo, Backstreet Boys and Queen with Lambert – and just until September. You can even watch the next WWE Smackdown on September 17 – big whoop!
