Clemson to open 2022 season in Mercedes-Benz Stadium

Updated with change to schedule of Clemson and Georgia Tech opening the 2022 season instead of 2020

Clemson is set to open with Georgia Tech again in the future - but this time in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in the 2022 season.

Stadium's Brett McMurphy reported Tuesday that Georgia Tech was moving its 2020 home game with Clemson to Mercedes-Benz Stadium, but a release from the school later in the day had the matchup on Sept. 5, 2022, in a Labor Day Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game.

Dabo Swinney's Tigers haven't played in the venue yet but could get their first taste this December with the Peach Bowl being a College Football Playoff semifinal.

The Tigers and Yellow Jackets will open the 2019 season on Thursday, Aug. 29, in Death Valley, debuting the ACC Network.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Monday that the move is a part of Georgia Tech looking to expand its revenue with expectations of a deficit in the 2020 fiscal year.
