If you’re a season ticket holder for Atlanta United, check your email. The club sent notices out today inviting all season ticket holders to come watch the team train in Mercedes Benz Stadium on August 19 from 10 a.m. - noon.
This is essentially a dry run for the gameday operations employees, but also for the fans. Obviously we will all be compelled to attend on the sheer excitement of seeing the stadium, but it’s also an opportunity for us fans to figure out logistics: where to park, which gate to enter, finding our seats, etc.
That said, it should be a fun time. It will be a chance to see the players in a more intimate setting, and concessions for food and beverage will be available. Falcons season ticket holders will have the same opportunity immediately following Atlanta United’s training to watch the football team (from 12:30 to 3:30).
It’s a good gesture from the club and the AMB Group to offer something like this, but also smart to help them prepare for future events to help everything run as smoothly as can be expected.
