MERCEDES-BENZ STADIUM LAUNCHES TOUR BUSINESS

ATLANTA – September 26, 2017 – Mercedes-Benz Stadium (MBS) has today announced the opening of its stadium tour business with the launch of pre-sale tickets for behind the scenes, guided tours of the world-class sports venue. Adding an exciting new attraction for locals and visitors alike in the heart of downtown Atlanta, guided tours of MBS will launch September 30 and be available several times daily. The stadium tours will offer a unique, inside look at the new home of the National Football League’s Atlanta Falcons, Major League Soccer’s Atlanta United and many other top sports and entertainment events.

 

Opened to the public in August 2017 with a slew of unforgettable match-ups for the Falcons, Atlanta United and college football, Mercedes-Benz Stadium is an architectural marvel with an unmatched entertainment experience, bold design and one-of-a-kind signature features such as the eight-piece retractable roof and 360-degree video Halo board. Signature tour stops and features will include:

 

  • Player Locker Rooms: Created with coach and player feedback, the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United locker rooms are expansive, state-of-the-art spaces that were custom designed for the teams.
  • Playing Field: Visitors can step onto the 50-yard line of the playing field and experience the stadium from the player’s perspective.
  • Window to the City & Skybridge: Offering sweeping interior and exterior views as well as natural sunlight, the floor-to-ceiling window to the city is best viewed on the Skybridge, a social gathering place on the stadium’s northeast corner allows fans the opportunity to connect with the downtown landscape and skyline.
  • Art Collection: The stadium has partnered with the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) to curate a 200-piece art collection of energetic artwork that elevates the guest experience throughout the building.
  • 100 Yard Club: At 100 yards long, this Falcons-themed bar and entertainment space located on the upper concourse is the first of its kind in the NFL. The club features yard markers on the floor, custom hash mark lighting along the ceiling and Red Zone bars on either end, aligning perfectly with the playing field.

 

“Everything about this stadium is one-of-a-kind and we are excited to welcome fans and visitors from all over the world into our new home,” said Michael Drake, Chief Revenue Officer, Business Operations at AMB Sports & Entertainment. “With such a spectacular venue and team of highly-trained guides to lead the way, we anticipate MBS tours will become a popular and meaningful addition to the city’s already-thriving tourism industry.”

 

Guided tours will begin on September 30, 2017 and be priced at $25 for adults and $20 for kids age 3-12, seniors and military, not-inclusive of taxes and fees.
