As Louisville wins, mass exodus goes off without a hitch

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

It takes a lot of coordination to get 74,000 fans to exit a stadium without a hitch. But that's what Atlanta police said happened Monday night.

Louisville Cardinals fans chanted as they slowly poured out of the Georgia Dome Monday, celebrating their team's NCAA Basketball Championship win.

Michigan fans were some of the first to leave, before the game was even over.

Local law enforcement teamed up to help keep the crowds coming out of the Georgia Dome flowing smoothly.

Many fans opted to take MARTA over driving, as a record 10,000 fans filled the dome throughout the course of the weekend's Final Four games.

Just after midnight, an Atlanta Police Department spokesman said there were no major problems to report and that the fans' exit seemed to be moving smoothly.
