McDonald’s All-American Games Headed to Atlanta

McDaag Atlanta

After a seven-year run in Chicago, the 2018 McDonald’s All American Games have officially found a new home in Atlanta, USA Today reported on Wednesday. The games will be played in Philips Arena.

P“We’re thrilled to partner with the city of Atlanta and the Philips Arena to bring the McDonald’s All American Games back to the state of Georgia,” Morgan Wootten, Hall-of-Fame basketball coach and McDonald’s All American Games Selection Committee Chairman told USA Today. “We’re equally grateful to the city of Chicago and our local partners that helped make the Games a great success for the past seven years and we can’t wait to bring our annual Games to a passionate basketball fan-base in Atlanta.”

Last year’s McDonald’s All-American Game saw the West Team defeat the East Team by a score of 109-107, with 2017 Missouri commit Michael Porter Jr. taking home MVP honors after a 17 point, 8 rebound performance.

“It’s just an incredible venue and an incredible city,” said Williams, a former McDonald’s All American who won the Morgan Wootten Player of the Year award in 1999. “Chicago was a great run, but I think it’s cool getting back to moving the game to different locations and getting new fans into these locations to witness it. Basketball is huge everywhere and it’s great for us to tap into different sites.”
