Atlanta Falcons Mercedes Benz Stadium
Updated: Jan 12, 2022
Are you ready to Rise Up? That is what Falcons do!!
In 2017 Atlanta opened the new Mercedes Benz Stadium downtown near CNN, College Football Hall of Fame, The Georgia Aquarium, The big Ferris wheel, the World of Coke. and much more. Click here to learn about some of these fun places.
The amazing retractable roof may be open during some games and it cost about 1.6 billion dollars build the whole. stadium.
You must use the Falcon app, Apple Wallet to Ticketmaster app to get in with your ticket. You will hold up your phone to the machine to get in. Just slide the ticket if you have more than one ticket. You may want to download the Falcon app before the game to use while there too.
How to get there: Plan to get there early to park.
You can take Marta to GWCC. (Georgia World Congress Center/Phillips arena/CNN Center). For Marta, kids under 46 inches or shorter ride free! When you ride Marta you need your ticket to enter and exit so keep it handy. When you get there look for the signs to the stadium.
There are lots of parking lots around the stadium. I like to buy my spot ahead so I know I have a spot. The closer lots run about $50 plus. Make sure you know where you enter the stadium so you can exit the same way to find your car easily. You can use the park mobile app or website to pick parking for the stadium ahead of the game
None clear bags must be under 4.5 X 6.5 so basically smaller than a cell phone, think more a small wallet about the size of a charge card.
Clear bags can be 12X6X12
Here is a great clear bag that I use for most stadiums. (Amazon Affiliate Link)

Purchases are Charge Cards only
To purchase food or retail, you must use a card, Apple Pay, Google Pay or Samsung Pay. There are cash to card kiosks you can use before you buy food or retail if you only have cash.
During a Falcon game if you are in Mercedes Club Seats, the home football team seats are sections C112,C111,C110,C109,C108
Delta Club Seats sections C126, C127, C128, C129 C130 are the same but for the away team.
These are Delta Club pictures but from an Atlanta United game. It would be the visiting team here for Falcon games.
These seats have private restrooms, private place to get food and drinks for a cost and is located under the seat sections. Look for the steps down below your section and you can even go stand on the side of the field to watch during the game.
Before the team enters the field, they block off the middle area of the club so you can watch the team enter and exit during the game/halftime and the end of the game. Many times you can get autographs (covid protocols may be put in place sometimes and limit this). We always bring a ball and Sharpie for my son to have something signed.
There are also other club levels example Harrahs Cherokee Casino on level 2 for those ticketed areas. You have fewer rows of seats but free drinks and food.
The stadium is fun to walk around and explore. Be sure to check out the wall of helmets!
