Georgia Tech vs. Florida State
American College Football will return to Ireland for the sixth time in twelve years with the Aer Lingus College Football Classic between Georgia Tech and Georgia Tech at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium on Saturday, August 24, 2024.
The Jackets kick off their 2024 season against their Atlantic Coast Conference foes, the Florida State Seminoles. The Seminoles will be making their first visit to Ireland, while the Yellow Jackets return after defeating Boston College, 17-14, in Aviva Stadium on September 3, 2016. It is expected that 20,000 fans will travel from the US and Europe to take in the full college football event experience.
The Aer Lingus College Football Classic will be held at the magnificent Aviva Stadium, which also held the 2012 Emerald Isle Classic between the University of Notre Dame and U.S. Naval Academy, as well as the 2016 Aer Lingus College Football Classic between Boston College and Georgia Tech.
Aviva Stadium is located in Dublin, Ireland, with a capacity of 51,700 and 48,000 for American Football. It is built on the site of the former Lansdowne Road stadium, which was demolished in 2007, and where Boston College played in 1988. It is home to the Irish Rugby Football Union and the Republic of Ireland national football team.
