There are claims that the Miss Universe 2019 coronation night will take place in the United States on December 8, 2019. However, the organizers of the international beauty pageant have yet to confirm the date and the venue.
It is likely that the coronation night will indeed take place in the U.S. instead of South Korea, which was previously rumored. Recently, Miss Universe contacted the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau about the possibility of hosting the annual beauty pageant.
The specific venue in Atlanta has yet to be confirmed. The ACVB spokesperson Heather Kirksey told the Atlanta Journal Constitution, “We are working to see what’s available.”
With an estimated population of 498,044 in 2018, Atlanta is the most populous city in Georgia. The city is home to Georgia Aquarium, the largest indoor aquarium in the world, the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site, the Atlanta Botanical Garden and Zoo Atlanta in Grant Park.
Atlanta will be very busy if it will really host the Miss Universe 2019 coronation night on December 8, 2019. On December 7, 2019, the Southeastern Conference (SEC) Championship. football game will be held at the Mercedez-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
