    Falcons Chick-fil-A

    The Falcons' billion-dollar stadium will have a Chick-fil-A that's almost never open

    The Atlanta Falcons' new billion-dollar stadium features a Chick-fil-A, but if you're planning to attend a Falcons home game during the upcoming season, it's highly unlikely you'll be able to eat there. That's because the Chick-fil-A won't even be open.

    That's right. The Chick-fil-A inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium won't be made available to Falcons fans because none of its locations are allowed to be open on Sundays.

    Not really true, the stadium is used for a lot more things that just NFL games. Even so the Falcons only have 8 regular season games there a year, after college football is over the NFL does have regular games on Saturday, also don't forget the regular games that are not scheduled on Sunday (monday night and thursday night? football)

    Seven Falcons games on sunday this year.

    If what I say offends you then you really don't want to hear what I keep to myself.

    Dang those lazy Christians, what's wrong with them for taking Sunday off,
    Like everyone else attending the game.

    Well, yeah... That is noted in the article. Still can't ignore the revenue that a sold out stadium would generate just for 1 NFL game...

    I think the more noteworthy thing about the stadium is the fan friendly concessions prices. I think I paid $6 for a coke at a college game about 5 years ago, and maybe $16 for a meal at Camden Yards the same year.

    The free advertising for CF of standing by company principles will be noticed by all the fans walking past the closed stand on Sundays will sell a whole lot more items elsewhere during the rest of the week

    Yep. Look for Mondays to pick up. "Dang, Chick-fil-A....now I'm craving a chicken sammich..." And nothing makes you want one like when you can't have it.
