I am grateful that Major League Baseball has once again considered Cobb County, Truist Park, and the Atlanta Braves to host the All Star Game in 2025.
We have a winning baseball team and community that create a premier destination for this annual occasion.
Our restaurants, businesses, and attractions surrounding Truist Park, the Battery, and beyond will create a memorable experience for all.
Planning has already begun with Public Safety, and I know our lessons learned in winning the World Series combined with the enthusiasm and support of community partners and citizens, will showcase Cobb as a great place to live, work, and enjoy as we host another successful and impressive event.
Major League Baseball
Baseball’s brightest stars will shine bright in Atlanta in 2025. Commissioner Rob Manfred announced Thursday that the 2025 All-Star Game and the accompanying All-Star Week events have been awarded to the Braves, the third time Atlanta will host the Midsummer Classic.
“I commend Terry McGuirk, Derek Schiller, the entire Braves organization and the Atlanta Sports Council for leading this effort,” Manfred said. “As a model of success on and off the field, the Braves deserve to host the All-Star Game. Truist Park and The Battery Atlanta will provide fans a world-class experience in 2025. We look forward to working with the Braves and local leaders to deliver a memorable All-Star Week that brings people together and benefits the community in many ways.”
The 2025 All-Star Game will be the 95th Midsummer Classic, the first held in Atlanta since 2000, when Derek Jeter earned Most Valuable Player honors at Turner Field. The city’s first All-Star Game took place in 1972 at Atlanta Stadium, highlighted by Hank Aaron’s two-run home run that helped pace an NL victory.
Since Truist Park opened in 2017, the Braves have enjoyed a long run of regular-season and postseason success, providing multiple opportunities for fans to enjoy the facility and The Battery Atlanta, a sports and entertainment complex located next to the ballpark.
We are thrilled that Major League Baseball has awarded the 2025 All-Star Game to the Atlanta Braves! This will be an exciting and unique opportunity to showcase all that our organization, our partners, and our city have to offer.
Truist Park and The Battery Atlanta were specially designed for an event like this and will provide the ideal backdrop for the Midsummer Classic. The MLB All-Star Game will join the long list of epic sporting events hosted in Atlanta in recent years, including the Super Bowl, MLS All-Star Game, College Football Playoff National Championship, and more.
We look forward to working alongside MLB and our local businesses and community members to create memorable and impactful experiences for an unforgettable All-Star Week.
