Some 5.5 million homes will have the opportunity to watch the Tucker Tigers season opener in August as the team accepted a bid to play in the 23rd annual Metro PCS Corky Kell Classic to be televised live from the Georgia Dome by Comcast Sports Southeast (CSS).

The Tigers, who finished last season in the Class AAAAA state title game with a loss to Creekside, get the prime time slot of 8:30 p.m. in the Corky Kell on Saturday, Aug. 23 against Class AAAAAA championship game winner Norcross.

Moving up to Class AAAAAA in 2014, the Tigers will get their first taste of the largest classification competition on the big stage at the Georgia Dome with viewers from across 12 states watching on CSS. Tucker finished its two-year stay in Class AAAAA by playing its third state championship in six seasons and winning the 2008 and 2011 Class AAAA titles.

One of five new teams playing the Corky Kell in 2014, Tucker joins Norcross, Carrollton, Valdosta and Mill Creek as new teams to play in the Georgia Dome. 

Live broadcasts of the games also come via radio on 92.9 The Game (FM).
