    The Georgia Dome is owned by the State of Georgia. When completed in 1992 the Georgia Dome was the largest dome structure in the world, holding that title until 1999 when the Millennium Dome in London was built. The Georgia Dome has been home of the Atlanta Falcons since it was built in 1992. When the Atlanta Falcons became a team in 1966 they played at Atlanta Fulton County Stadium. The Falcons shared the stadium with the Atlanta Braves. In 1983 Rakin Smith, the owner of the Falcons expressed the want for a new stadium. Discussions were slow as some pushed for renovating Atlanta Fulton Stadium. In 1989 funding was approved through the state. Construction started in 1989 and it was completed three years later (1992). In 2006 the operator, George World Congress Center Authority and the Falcons announced a two stage renovation plan. In the fall of 2008 the second stage was completed having replaced all the seating and renovating the concourses. In 2009 the stadium also received two video screens for each endzone. The Georgia World Congress Center Authority in 2012 approved a new stadium to replace the Georgia Dome due to open in 2017.
