ATLANTA - Mercedes-Benz Stadium will be the site of the College Football Playoff National Championship in January and an event of that size needs help from lots of volunteers.
The Atlanta Football Host Committee (AFHC) is seeking more than 2,000 people to volunteer for fan events before, during and after the game.
Dan Corso, president of the AFHC's board of directors, stopped by Good Day Atlanta Thursday morning to talk about what's needed for the January 8 game.
Volunteer responsibilities will include hospitality, transportation, access control, operations, and more. All volunteers will be required to complete one training session in December.
The volunteer shifts will range from four to six hours, with a requirement of serving on at least three shifts.
