The New Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which will be home to the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United (set to begin play in 2017), is currently under construction. Several renderings of the unique design for the stadium have been available to the public for some time. However, a new fly-through video released this Tuesday shows the much-anticipated Mercedes-Benz Stadium in all its glory, including the unique retractable roof, a gigantic window providing a view of downtown Atlanta, and the 360-degree HD “halo” video board running the entire circumference of the stadium. The fly-through video gives fans a look at each part of the stadium, including the various lounges and bars. The video also shows the proposed set-up for concerts, basketball games, and MLS. Soccer fans should pay particular attention to the 2:51 mark of the video, which shows how the stadium will be converted for Atlanta United games to provide a more intimate feel.
