The Atlanta Braves will host the 2021 All-Star Game at Suntrust Park, Major League Baseball has announced.

"When we built SunTrust Park and The Battery Atlanta we envisioned our complex would be the perfect setting for an All-Star Game and we are thrilled to be able to showcase the ballpark, Cobb County and the City of Atlanta to the world," Braves chairman Terry McGuirk said in a statement.

It will be the third All-Star Game in Atlanta. The exhibition game was played in the city in 1972 and 2000.
