Mercedes-Benz Stadium is a 72,000-seat retractable roof stadium for hosting NFL and MLS games and other sporting events, in addition to concerts, family shows, extreme sports, general public assembly events, and stage shows. Seating will be expandable to approximately 80,000 for marquee events such as Super Bowls and World Cup Soccer. Mercedes-Benz is the future home of the NFL Atlanta Falcons and MLS’s Atlanta 2017 expansion team.
The stadium’s defining feature is a one-of-a-kind retractable roof, which operates similar to a camera shutter – the roof is comprised of eight petals that open to create a camera lens-like effect. Beneath the roof is a first-of-its-kind, 360-degree high-definition video board. The “halo board” is 64,000 square-feet of LED, and will be the largest video board in any stadium, giving every fan additional camera views and digital content.
