The Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders debuted during the 1960s and were originally known as The Falconettes.
Since that time, the all-female squad has underwent a number of cosmetic changes, but their primary goal has always been to support the Falcons to the best of their abilities. They are also very involved in the community, and the Falcons Cheerleaders have traveled overseas to support U.S. soldiers serving abroad.
