Who is ready for a road trip?
The Atlanta Falcons NFL team has just announced that food at their new Mercedes-Benz Stadium , opening in 2017, will have 'game changing' concession prices.
According to the official press release, non-alcoholic beverage products with unlimited free refills, hotdogs, popcorn and pretzels will be only $2. Pizza, nachos and waffle fries will retail for $3. And domestic beer will be priced at $5.
An annual survey by Team Marketing Report found that the average lowest price for a hot dog at an NFL stadium last season was $5.29.
“We focused from the beginning on building a unique fan experience at Mercedes-Benz Stadium with a goal of helping those who visit to leave the stadium with great memories shared with family and friends, not aggravation and frustration about their experience,” Falcons and Atlanta United owner, Arthur M. Blank said.
Not only will these prices be for Falcons game, but every event, including concerts at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium will offer the same prices.
Blank added during a press conference that the big difference between the new stadium and the Georgia Dome is that it's not run by the state.
Isn't that the truth!
