    This is interesting (from Yahoo - Shutdown Corner):

    Falcons announce fan-friendly concessions pricing for new stadium

    Here's a novel idea: an NFL team that actually cares about fans who aren't sitting in private boxes.

    On Monday, Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank and team president Rich McKay announced a revolutionary concept: "fan first" pricing on popular concession items at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which is set to open before the 2017 NFL season.

    How friendly will the prices be? Judge for yourself:
    • $2 – Non-alcoholic beverage products with unlimited free refills
    • $2 – Dasani bottled water; hot dogs; pretzels; popcorn
    • $3 – Peanuts; pizza; nachos; waffle fries
    • $5 – 12 oz. domestic beer
    Blank stressed that the prices are not short-term, a gimmick to celebrate the opening of the stadium; they are part of a "core philosophy" to say thank you to fans for their loyalty.

    The pricing will be in place for all events at the stadium: Falcons games, Atlanta United FC games and major events already scheduled, like the Peach Bowl, SEC Championship game and NCAA Final Four (scheduled for 2020).

    And when it comes to the soda refills, there will be self-serve stations away from the concession stands, so fans can help themselves.

    Quite the gesture, in our opinion.

    I absolutely love how the Falcons are treating their fans:

    From Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) on Twitter:
    Falcons send reminder on low food cost in new stadium, @juliojones_11 has my first hot dog http://es.pn/1sCPDEV
    [​IMG]

    Come the opening of Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the Atlanta Falcons will serve up some seriously affordable game-day fare at the lowest prices in major team sports.

    Better still? Thanks to wide receiver Julio Jones (and others in the organization), many of the offered items, including a hot dog, popcorn or bottled water, just might be free.

    Fans inclined to secure 2017 season tickets recently received direct mail from their favorite squad containing a $2 bill and a reminder regarding the meal choices available to them at that cost.

    Options outside of the new stadium? There are likely significantly fewer.

    Those low prices wont last if they want to maintain the stadium.
