Mercedes-Benz Stadium Open House
Fútbol season is here!
And Football season is here! About a week ago on August 19, 2017, season ticket holders got to visit and tour the brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium! Since my hubby and I are ATL United season ticket holder, we got the earlier tour. I personally haven't been to that many stadiums but this one was definitely the nicest one I've been to. I loved the layout and the awesome 360-degree halo display! They also have many contemporary artworks throughout the stadium and areas to watch the game if you want to move around.
There are also many recognizable Atlanta food concessions such as Antico Pizza, Delia's Chicken Sausage, Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q, King of Pops, Sublime Doughnuts, Iberian Pig, Chick-fil-A, and lots more. I'm really excited that many of these are local restaurants. But the best part about these food concessions is that the price is cheaper than any other stadiums I've been to, which was a huge ask of their fans and the stadium delivered. Now I won't feel like I'm breaking the bank if I want to grab a bite to eat while enjoying some fútbol and football. Plus they have fully stocked bars around the stadium.
The tour got even better since we got to see the Atlanta United team practice. We managed to get to the ground level right as they were finishing up practice and the team came around to greet their fans. I got to meet my favorite player #10 Miguel Almirón! He was really sweet to his fans and signed everyone's shirt (and even a baseball haha) and took pictures with everyone.
The stadium is officially open and the Falcons had their first pre-season game just this past weekend. I'm so stoked for all of the games/concert that will take place in this stadium and I can't wait to go back.
P.S. Marta is your best friend if you want to avoid traffic and the hassle of finding parking.
