All-New Mercedes-Benz Stadium Unveiled In Atlanta, Will Host Falcons & United FC

If you happen to be a fan of either the Atlanta Falcons or the Atlanta United Football Club (or both!), Mercedes-Benz has you covered with an awesome new arena.

The Mercedes-Benz Stadium will be the new home of the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons, who will take up residence in 2017. Mercedes USA are actually moving their corporate headquarters from New Jersey to Atlanta as well, under the guidance of CEO Steve Cannon.

The building is designed by HOK architects and is obviously a state-of-the-art facility that will offer sweeping views of the Atlanta skyline.

The stadium will be able to hold up to 83,000 people, which is absolutely perfect for all the major games and events. You can also bet that it won’t take long for Atlanta to host the Super Bowl now.

Design-wise, you’re looking at a roof inspired by the ancient Roman Pantheon oculus, while its five-story-tall 360-degree video board will be the largest in the NFL.

Filling all those seats isn’t going to be easy, but rest assured that people will show up for Falcons games, and in greater numbers than they did at the Georgia Dome – where the Falcons had an average attendance of 72,130 people.

The stadium’s capacity will be reduced for MLS games, which means that no more than 29,322 fans of the Atlanta United FC can show up to their games.

Of course, whenever there’s a Super Bowl, a Final Four, a World Cup game and so on, the attendance can be expanded to the maximum 83,000.

Watching the presentation video, you can’t help but be astonished at how magnificent of a structure this is.
