The Atlanta Falcons Stadium Company (StadCo) have announced a long-term agreement with dining and hospitality innovator, Levy Restaurants.
Levy will partner with StadCo to set the new standard for the game and event experience for NFL and MLS fans, and all other guests at the new Atlanta stadium set to open in 2017. The agreement was reached following an extensive selection process involving top-tier hospitality providers.
The new stadium – designed by 360 Architecture – will serve as home for the Falcons and other marquee sports, convention and entertainment events, as well as Atlanta’s newly-awarded Major League Soccer (MLS) franchise, which will begin play in 2017.
Levy will create intuitive dining and hospitality spaces and experiences to bring the ultimate event day to life for each guest at the stadium.
Atlanta Falcons President & CEO, Rich McKay, said:
We are committed to establishing a food and hospitality experience that will re-set the bar for stadiums. Levy will be a strong partner in helping us re-imagine the stadium experience not only for Falcons and Major League Soccer fans, but for all guests attending events at the new stadium.
Levy Restaurants’ President & CEO, Andy Lansing, added:
Today’s fans expect a total experience that includes great food, emerging technology, the best hospitality and more. We love the Falcons’ vision. This is an exciting opportunity to challenge everything and transform each aspect to create the new definition of the best in class experience.
To help create an iconic epicenter of activity for the City of Atlanta and the region, Levy will leverage its restaurateur-driven, creative vision for hospitality, industry-leading business intelligence and deep local relationships, re-imagining the hospitality approach throughout the new facility.
The Falcons recently announced a season ticket wait-list program allowing fans who are not currently season ticket holders to reserve seating priority in the new stadium.
