Georgia State buys Turner Field

Georgia State officially owns Turner Field, will build a football stadium

Georgia State and Carter and Oakwood Development plan to create a new football stadium for the Panthers and turn the surrounding parking lots into a mixed-use community and southern extension of Georgia State’s campus. The development plan includes student housing, apartments, single-family homes, classroom space, a grocery store and a Panthers baseball field.

Transforming a baseball stadium into a football one: Turner Field becomes Georgia State’s home

Seating capacity in the new configuration will be about 25,000, expandable to 33,000 for football and 42,000 for concerts. The upper-deck seats won’t be sold for football games, not immediately, but Georgia State hopes that the games become enough of a draw that those seats become viable sales.
