The UCF Knights will travel to Atlanta for its first game of the season against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets this Saturday. They’re coming off a 16-13 win at FSU last Saturday before the Knights roll into town.
Sept. 19 will mark the third contest between UCF and Georgia Tech — the last matchup was on Sept. 2, 2000 and the Yellow Jackets won 21-17.
This trip will be very different from those in years past, however, as COVID-19 switches things up in the college football world. Attendance at Bobby Dodd Stadium has been approved for 20% capacity, or about 11,000 fans.
Here’s your guide to traveling to Atlanta for the game. But the most important thing to remember is to always rep the Black and Gold wherever you are in Georgia!

Location: Bobby Dodd Stadium, 177 North Avenue NW, Atlanta, GA 30313

UCF Athletics announced it would not be selling any tickets for away games.
“Fans interested in attending games at other stadiums will need to either purchase tickets directly through the home team’s ticket office or through the secondary market,” UCF Athletics said.
There are still single game tickets available on StubHub here. Tickets start at $37 and are available in groups of 2, 4 or 6.
Keep in mind that due to COVID-19, fans must stay in their reserved seats and cannot interact with fans in other seating clusters.
Tailgating is permitted in institute-controlled parking areas around Bobby Dodd. Social distancing guidelines apply and additional hand-sanitizing stations will be added throughout lots, according to Georgia Tech. The university also strongly encourages fans to wear face masks at all times while on campus.
