Stadium Information

About State Farm Arena:

State Farm Arena opened in 1999 and was originally built for both basketball and hockey. After the Thrashers moved to Winnipeg in 2011, the building became used only for basketball.  It was known as Philips Arena between 1999 and 2018.

Tour Info:

There doesn't appear to be any public tour offerings at this time.

Security Screenings:

Like almost all US and Canadian Stadiums, you will need to enter through a metal detector before entering the stadium.  Be sure to give yourself extra time and don't bring any weapons or devices that could be seen as a weapon inside.  Pat down searches may be required.

Bag Policy:

Backpacks, oversized bags, and suitcases are prohibited.  All bags are subject to search.

Note: Bag and security policy listed above are for typical sporting events. Special events, concerts, and other situations may result in variation to the policy. Please check event website for any changes or variation.

Parking & Transportation

Parking Options

Plenty of garages available around the stadium and World Congress Center Area.

We're setting up a partnership with a new parking company. Stay tuned for more details!

Bus Service:

The 51 route will drop you off just north of the arena at CNN headquarters.

Rail Service:

Located one block from the Dome/GWCC/Philips Arena/CNN on the blue/green rail line. See the MARTA website to plan your trip.

Taxi & Rideshare Service:

There doesn't appear to be an official taxi stand, but from what we understand taxis won't be difficult to find on any road outside the arena.
