One of the core values of the Arthur M. Blank Family of Businesses – which includes the Atlanta Falcons, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta United and many more – is to Listen and Respond. We continue to listen to concerns and challenges from fans about getting into the stadium on gamedays and are also addressing them as we build out the facility and experience at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
The New Mercedes Benz Stadium venue will have compelling club and field suite pre-game experiences for fans that will be unmatched, as well as a fan plaza inside security for fans to gather and enjoy a festive pre-game experience. The Fan First pricing that was introduced earlier this year so fans can come early and enjoy lunch or dinner - at a reasonable price - at the stadium.
In addition, the front gate experience is being designed to optimize the number of magnetometers and staff positioning. This will help ensure a fast, consistent flow as fans pass through security, bag check, any secondary checks and the ticket scanning process at all gates. The goal at Mercedes-Benz Stadium is to get all fans through the entry experience in as little time as possible so they won't miss a second of game action and they can enjoy everything the stadium will have to offer.
See you Sunday!
