Crews have been working for weeks to prepare the stadium for the scheduled implosion.
Stadium officials recently shared an animation of what they hope will happen that day.
Because the Georgia Dome currently sits next to the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium and the Georgia World Congress Center, and there is a MARTA rail underneath, officials want to make sure the stadium collapses as opposed to blowing outward.
