One day after Atlanta United lost to the Philadelphia Union in Concacaf Champions League action in front of a half capacity Mercedes-Benz Stadium, AMB Sports and Entertainment announced Atlanta United’s next home against CF Montréal on May 15th will operate at full capacity.

“We are excited to bring our fans back to Mercedes-Benz Stadium,” said AMB Sports and Entertainment CEO Steve Cannon. “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 uppermost level will remained close. The Atlanta Falcons, who share the Mercedes-Benz Stadium with Atlanta United, also plan to play in full capacity games at the start of the NFL season.
