Brand-new fly-through video of the New Atlanta Stadium

In a brand-new fly-through video of the New Atlanta Stadium, viewers are taken on a unique tour in point-of-view fashion beginning one mile above the stadium’s circular retractable roof and through many of the stadium’s key areas. From the club seating and suites to the general concourse and plaza spaces, viewers have the opportunity to see the stadium through a new perspective:


Arthur Blank, Owner, Atlanta Falcons and MLS Atlanta, said of the new stadium:

We are committed to providing our fans and event guests with an unparalleled experience in the new facility.


The design for the New Atlanta Stadium creates an exceptional game-day experience for fans and an iconic architectural landmark for the city.

Designed as a signature element rather than a utilitarian cover, the New Atlanta Stadium’s retractable roof provides a radical departure from the kinetic roofs of other sports facilities. Derived from the shape of a falcon’s wing, a reference to the Atlanta Falcons NFL team, the roof features eight triangular panels that wrap the stadium and move in unison along individual tracks. This allows the roof to open and close like a camera aperture. Exterior lighting can easily change the color of the transparent facade.

The stadium interior offers fans an immersive, technology-driven, game-day experience. A wide array of seating options provide fans with varying ticket prices, vantage points, degrees of service and amenities. A 360-degree HD halo video board built into the roof offers fans clear views from every seat. Other amenities include a fantasy football lounge, a 100-yard bar and a floor-to-ceiling view of downtown Atlanta.

Designed for flexibility, the stadium can be quickly reconfigured to accommodate games for Atlanta’s new Major League Soccer franchise. Retractable seats surrounding the field allow fans to get close to the action for both soccer and football. Digital media platforms throughout the stadium offer flexible opportunities for teams and sponsors to display targeted programmable content on game days.

In addition to serving as an anchor for the downtown tourist and entertainment district, the New Atlanta Stadium will catalyze changes in neighborhoods surrounding the stadium. The project team’s focus on sustainable design, construction and operations extends into the community through the creation of urban farming and open recreation spaces.

HOK is working on this project with tvsdesign, Goode Van Slyke Architecture and Stanley Beaman & Sears.
