The seating capacity can be expanded to up to 75.000 to host a potential future Super Bowl or FIFA World Cup, or to up to 83.000 for other events such as the NCAA Final Four. Alternatively, by utilizing an innovative mechanized curtaining system for the stadium’s mid and upper bowls, capacity for events like family shows, concerts and Atlanta United (MLS) games can be reduced to optimize the appropriate event setting, tells official source at Mercedes.

The project valued at 1.400 million dollars has been designed by HOK, the same architectural firm responsible for the new Wembley in England. The sides of the crystal structure are inspired by the architecture of ancient Rome. The roof opens and closes like a spiral, emulating the Pantheon in its closed period (leaving a small round opening).

One of the details that were considered when designing the future home falcon was install a vibrating mechanism in the stands, to be activated with strong tackles during games. Another idea was to have holograms Falcons players greeting fans as they enter the field. Which itself was implemented was to give the sides of the stadium forms of wing, after the team emblem.

Perhaps the most impressive detail is circular stadium of 335 meters in circumference and 18 meters high that will adorn the roof of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium ring like a giant screen. It will be the world’s largest HD screen in front of the famous AT & T Stadium in Dallas (1058 meters square).
