AMB Sports increases capacity to 100 percent for Atlanta United games

By AccessWDUN Staff

ATLANTA — AMB Sports and Entertainment says they'll allow a packed house for the upcoming Atlanta United match against CF Montréal at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

The organization that owns and operates Mercedes-Benz Stadium, home of Atlanta United and the Atlanta Falcons, made the announcement on Wednesday and said the decision was based on the increased access to vaccine distribution, and health and safety protocols in place at the stadium. 

“We are excited to bring our fans back to Mercedes-Benz Stadium,” says Steve Cannon, CEO, AMB Sports and Entertainment.  “Given the increased opportunity for Georgians to be vaccinated, the abundant health protocols we have in place at the stadium, and the interest from our season ticket members, we felt that now is the right time to re-open the stadium in full capacity allowing all our season ticket members a chance to enjoy watching their teams in person.  We will continue to follow the necessary precautions to give fans a safe and clean environment.”

The two lower levels, in typical soccer configuration, will be available for Atlanta United fans.
 
Additionally, the Atlanta Falcons are planning for, and intend to be, at full capacity for games at the start of the season in the fall per a statement made by Commissioner Roger Goodell that he expects to have full venues for the NFL season working in conjunction with local public health officials.
