Atlanta. Sub divisions in Georgia world congress center, then Einstein in Mercedes Benz, Where the Falcons play, it’s a <5 minute walk.

Re: If You Could Choose Where the FIRST Championship Goes Next Where Would it Be?

I'd love to see it go back to Atlanta. St. Louis works too.

Would Indy work with the Indiana Convention Center next-door to Lucas Oil Stadium?

Indy Convention Center is an amazing place. It might be one of the best possible venues for a FIRST Championship.

Oooh, agreed. The only problem I could see would be forcing all the US teams going to champs to get passports. There's too many US teams in comparison to Canadian teams for that to be really feasible, which is sad. I love Toronto.

Re: If You Could Choose Where the FIRST Championship Goes Next Where Would it Be?

Hawaii, so I have an excuse to go to Hawaii.


But perhaps a bit more seriously:

Anywhere with an international airport, not-unreasonable-traffic, suburbs with hotels, and warm. I like warm.

Also good BBQ. Will substitute other foods, perhaps. Some local places of interest....

Phoenix, somewhere-florida, the Carolinas, San Jose... ? Maybe even Denver?

I think at this point, I'm actually just describing places I'd like to go on vacation to.

Re: If You Could Choose Where the FIRST Championship Goes Next Where Would it Be?

I'll throw my hat in the ring for Atlanta, even though I never attended champs there in the past. That new Mercedes-Benz Stadium looks incredible.

Edit: Looks like Atlanta's soccer league plays there though around this time of year, which may throw a wrench in that idea.

Re: If You Could Choose Where the FIRST Championship Goes Next Where Would it Be?

L.A., if somehow the Staples Center could be available (2 basketball and 1 hockey teams, maybe 3 basketball teams?) at the same time as the convention center, OR at that new NFL stadium in Carson.

Re: If You Could Choose Where the FIRST Championship Goes Next Where Would it Be?

San Francisco, at a combination of Moscone Center and/or the new Chase Center.

Alternatively there's SAP Center at San Jose, but it's on the smaller side. It'd be a good spot for a DCMP though...
