Falcons reveal affordable menu prices at new Mercedes-Benz Stadium

NFL American football franchise the Atlanta Falcons’ Mercedes-Benz Stadium has revealed its menus with fan-friendly concession pricing.

The Bleacher Report website, citing a tweet from ESPN’s Darren Rovell, reported that refillable soft drinks would be listed at $2, while Bud Light draft beers will cost fans $5. A slice of pizza and nachos with cheese will cost $3, while a hot dog and popcorn are $2.

The 70,000-capacity venue, which has been dogged by cost overruns and delays, is due to open in time for a Falcons pre-season game next month. The Mercedes-Benz Stadium will also be home to Major League Soccer franchise, Atlanta United.

The Falcons revealed its plans to keep pricing affordable for fans in May 2016, while also announcing it would feature restaurant and private club, Molly B’s.

Molly B’s, named after the Falcons’ owner’s mother, is set to open on August 26 on the 100-level concourse, with a separate entry by the main entrance of the stadium.
