The new Mercedes-Benz Stadium is proving to be a hit with fans - not least thanks to its fan-centric concessions pricing structure. With praise being heaped upon the stadium operators for targeting lower prices, should other major stadia follow suit and prioritize savings for fans over revenue from F&B?

Philips Arena to host McDonald’s All American Games in 2018

Philips Arena, home of the Atlanta Hawks, will host the 2018 McDonald’s All American Games, due to take place in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, on March 28, 2018.

“On behalf of the Atlanta Hawks, Philips Arena and the great city of Atlanta, we’re proud to host the 2018 McDonald’s All American Games and are excited they are returning to a region of the country with such a storied legacy of basketball,” said Dominique Wilkins, vice president of basketball for the Atlanta Hawks and a 1979 McDonald’s All American.

“Having spent much of my life playing and living here, I know the city and fans will enjoy hosting this event and seeing the next great crop of basketball talent.”

The announcement of Atlanta as the host city follows a run of All American Games held in Chicago, Illinois. In 2011, the Games returned to Chicago, which hosted the event for seven consecutive years, culminating in the 40th annual Games in 2017. Over that time, more than 100,000 fans attended the Games. Prior to the seven-year stint in Chicago, the annual Games traditionally took place in different cities each year.

“We’re thrilled to partner with the city of Atlanta and the Philips Arena to bring the McDonald’s All American Games back to the state of Georgia,” said Morgan Wootten Hall-of-Fame basketball coach and McDonald’s All American Games Selection Committee Chairman.

“We’re equally grateful to the city of Chicago and our local partners that helped make the Games a great success for the past seven years and we can’t wait to bring our annual Games to another passionate basketball fan-base in Atlanta.”
