Silverbacks Open Their New Home
Just over a week remains before the opening of RE/MAX Greater Atlanta Stadium and the Atlanta Silverbacks have pulled out all the stops for opening night. The Silverbacks will christen the stadium with a night full of entertainment. The inauguration for the Silverbacks’ new home at Atlanta Silverbacks Park, RE/MAX Greater Atlanta Stadium, will feature more than just great soccer; the evening’s events include a new Silverbacks theme song, rides in the RE/MAX hot-air balloon, a performance by the Atlanta Drumline, free giveaways and a fireworks show. The amazing event at Atlanta’s first world-class soccer complex will undoubtedly be the place to be on June 3 as Atlanta soccer fans eagerly anticipate a fantastic summer season of soccer including the Atlanta Silverbacks Men, the Atlanta Silverbacks Women and the 2006 World Cup.
For fans attending the historic event, the night will begin with rides in the RE/MAX hot-air balloon. The balloon will lift off from Atlanta Silverbacks Park and allow its occupants to float above the crowd with a 360-degree panoramic view - keep an eye out for Stone Mountain and the Atlanta skyline.
Upon entering the stadium, the first 500 fans will receive an Atlanta Silverbacks 2006 schedule magnet with all the Men’s and Women’s home games. As fans settle into their seats, Vernon Jones, DeKalb County CEO, will address the new stadium in DeKalb County. Just before the start of the official game introductions, the Silverbacks will unveil their new theme song written and produced by REUBTRX MUSAQ. The Stone Mountain Brass, one of metro-Atlanta’s finest musical ensembles, will perform the national anthem.
Once the game begins, spectators will watch 90 minutes of professional soccer from their own individual seat each equipped with a cup holder which will likely be filled with products from Heineken and Pepsi all night long. At halftime the Atlanta Drumline will perform one of their nationally-acclaimed performances. Atlanta’s best percussionists perform with this drumline known for its precision, custom arrangements and intense spirit. To end the memorable evening, fans will get to see an amazing display of fireworks over the new stadium.
Following the match VIP guests, including platinum pack holders, will be invited to a private party with players from the Silverbacks at the VIP tent in the northeast corner of the stadium. The tent will feature great music, comfy couches, and food available from FIGO Pasta.
