It's the fourth year the Falcons have held this event in Gwinnett. Previous stops have been at Norcross, Brookwood and Mill Creek high schools. And the NFL team that trains in Flowery Branch once had its facilities in Suwanee.
Sponsored by Kia Motors, Friday Night Lights is open to the public, and admission is free, the team said in a news release. The event also includes a fan fest with interactive inflatable games, a post-event autograph session and a fireworks show. During the live scrimmage, several players, including the Falcons' quarterbacks and certain position players, will be "mic’d" so fans can get an “under the helmet look” at the action on the field, the team said.
“Kia Motors Friday Night Lights is a great event that has grown throughout the years and gives our fans a chance to get an up close and personal experience with our team as we prepare for the 2012 season,” Falcons Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing Jim Smith said in the news release. “We truly appreciate the tremendous support from each community we have gone to since the beginning of the event.”
