The rich get richer as the SEC and the Atlanta Falcons have reportedly reached a 10-year deal worth $1.4 billion dollars that will keep the league’s football title game in Atlanta until at least 2026, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

The deal will move the SEC’s championship game from the Georgia Dome, which has hosted the title game since 1994, to the Falcon’s new facility, which will be called Mercedes-Benz Stadium. 

The deal is expected to be officially announced in Atlanta Tuesday at the College Football Hall of Fame by SEC commissioner Greg Sankey and Falcons owner Arthur Blank.
