In a vote Tuesday by NFL team owners, the Atlanta Falcons were approved for $200 million in NFL G-4 stadium financing for construction of a new multi-purpose stadium in Atlanta. Falcons Owner and Chairman Arthur Blank issued a statement after the vote.

“Today’s approval by the NFL team owners is an important milestone in moving the new stadium project forward.  The consideration of G-4 financing for new stadiums requires thoughtful analysis on the part of the NFL Finance and Stadium Committees, including compliance requirements that protect the best interests of all owners and the league.
 
“The NFL has supported new stadium construction through various means for decades.  Our club owners understand that investments such as G-4 financing are important to the long-term strength of the league, and we thank them for their support.
 
“We are pleased with the outcome of today’s vote, and we look forward to continued progress in designing and constructing the new multi-purpose stadium over the next four years.  We, along with our City of Atlanta and State of Georgia partners, are excited to participate in a project that will benefit the city and state for many years to come.”
 
Congrats to the entire Atlanta Falcons Staff for getting the job done, now lets just win some games!!
