ATLANTA PRO/COLLEGIATE SPORTS
Cobb County is conveniently located just 10 miles from Atlanta, a major sports city. Our town is home to numerous professional sports teams: the Atlanta Braves, Rugby ATL, Atlanta United, Atlanta Falcons, and the Atlanta Hawks. If you enjoy college sports, catch a baseball, softball or basketball game at Kennesaw State University.
Cobb has become a sports power alley where three major league teams will call Cobb home: Major League Rugby’s Rugby ATL; and Major League Baseball’s Atlanta Braves; and Major League Soccer’s Atlanta United.
We are the only destination in the United States to have three major league teams announce their arrival in less than 24 months. Sweet. Our sports partnerships also have brought national and international sporting events that included Perfect Game, USA Rugby and the Women’s 7s World Series, as well as the Major League Lacrosse Championships to our community.
In 2014, sports made an impact of more than $252 million in Cobb.
Whether it’s at Turner Field, the Georgia Dome, Phillips Arena or KSU, there’s an exciting sporting event nearby for just about every kind of sports fan.
