The city of Atlanta prepares for the demolition of the Georgia Dome.
The historic stadium, which has hosted two super bowls and the 1996 Olympics, will be torn down on Monday after 25 years of operation.
While some are saddened by its demolition, others are eager to enjoy the new Mercedes Benz Stadium that was built right next door.
The $1.6 billion venue was completed in August, and has already received praise for its state-of-the-art technology and retractable roof.
It will be the home field for the city’s professional soccer and football teams, and will host the super bowl in 2019.
