Georgia State Panthers Tickets
Georgia State University has the largest student enrollment of any college in Georgia, but the school has only had a football program since 2010. With big-name schools like UGA and Georgia Tech just around the corner and perennial FBS power Georgia Southern a few hours away, Georgia State is still trying to find its niche in the college football scene. Georgia State started its program with former NFL coach Bill Curry and won its first ever college football game against Shorter College 41-7 in the Georgia Dome. Georgia State continues to improve in both recruiting and wins and has even played in two bowl games, losing one and winning the other. Georgia is a talent-rich football state, and the Panthers have capitalized on this recruiting to become one of the most successful new college football programs in the nation.

Where is Georgia State located?
Georgia State University is located in downtown Atlanta, Ga. The campus was given a major upgrade for the 1996 Summer Olympics, but it is still a major commuter school with a high academic profile. It has the largest student enrollment of any school in Georgia, but the football program is still young and growing.
Who are the Georgia State Panthers biggest rivals?
Georgia State plays in the Sub Belt Conference of the FBS. The school's major rivals include schools like Georgia Southern and Appalachian State. These two schools have been around longer and experienced considerably more success than Georgia State, but the Panthers team is gaining ground on its more established rivals. Georgia State also plays larger schools almost every year, which give them some national exposure and helps with recruiting as well. Some notable wins in the team's nine-year existence have bolstered recruiting efforts.
How big is Georgia State's stadium?
The Georgia State Panthers played in the Georgia Dome from its inception until the 2016 season. The Georgia Dome was torn down, and Georgia State began playing at its own stadium: Georgia State Stadium. While the Georgia Dome held over 80,000 people at capacity, the Panthers closed off over half of the stadium for home games. The current stadium holds 23,000 people but rarely reaches capacity for home games.
What is tailgating like at a Georgia State Panthers game?
Tailgating at Georgia State is small but well-attended by students and alumni alike. At the new stadium, there is a parking lot nearby that doubles as a tailgating space for Panthers fans. Being in downtown Atlanta means that many people take MARTA or other transportation to the game rather than driving their own vehicles to tailgate, but those who park close to the stadium have a great time.
What are the biggest Georgia State games scheduled for 2019?
In 2019, Georgia State will play Tennessee, Furman, Western Michigan and Army. The Army team has seen a great deal of success over the past few years, but the University of Tennessee is the biggest game of the Panthers season. Tennessee plays in the SEC, by far the best conference in college football, and will provide national exposure to a program that will soon celebrate 10 years of playing college football.Back to Top
