Watch The Unbelievable Roof Of The Atlanta Falcons’ New Stadium Close For The First Time (VIDEO)
This could’ve been a great moment for the Atlanta Falcons franchise, as they were less than a half away from not only winning the Super Bowl, but opening their brand spanking new stadium with a trophy and banner ceremony.
Six months later, there won’t be a Super Bowl banner, but the fans can still enjoy Mercedes-Benz Stadium and its most eye-popping feature—the cool design of the retractable roof.
Watch as it closes for the very first time. Operators will be able to close it during a game if the fans aren’t loud enough. (So they can turn on the speakers and pump in some fake crowd noise… Get it?)
Here’a time lapse showing the length of construction.
