Corporate Partnership Seasonal Assistant - The Home Depot Backyard

🇺🇸 Atlanta, GA, USA
2+ years exp.

Mercedes-Benz Stadium

Mercedes-Benz Stadium is the new home of the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United and opened for its first events in August 2017. The stadium is also host of numerous other sports and entertainment events. The multi-purpose venue features flexible capacity that can expand to up to 83,000 seats; a retractable roof structure inspired by the oculus in the ancient Rome Pantheon; views of the Atlanta skyline; a 360-degree HD video halo board that, at nearly six stories tall and 1,100 linear feet in diameter, is the largest in the NFL and the world; an exterior fan plaza that provides fans with pre- and post-game entertainment; and a host of bars, restaurants and unique gathering destinations offering fans an unparalleled game day experience. Mercedes-Benz Stadium is part of AMB Sports & Entertainment, which also includes the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United.


We believe the Mercedes-Benz Stadium Campus can reconnect Westside neighborhoods with downtown Atlanta, provide year-round programming, and bring diverse groups together to share experiences and interests.

A central component of the campus is The Home Depot Backyard, a 11-acre greenspace that opened Fall 2018. This multi-purpose space is used for parking, tailgating and fan activations on game days and will be host to hundreds of programs and events per year, ranging from fitness classes to markets to concerts and cultural events.
