No cash ac­cepted for tick­ets, con­ces­sions at At­lanta sta­dium

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL SPORTS -

Mercedes-Benz Sta­dium is mov­ing away from cash trans­ac­tions for all events, in­clud­ing At­lanta Fal­cons and At­lanta United games.

The move to full cash­less pur­chases be­gins with the MLS At­lanta United game against Cincin­nati on Fri­day.

All ticket pur­chases, con­ces­sions and mer­chan­dise must be pur­chased with credit cards or mo­bile pay­ment. As an op­tion, fans can use cash to pur­chase debit cards at new ATM ma­chines and use the debit cards for pur­chases.

The sta­dium is the na­tion’s first pro­fes­sional fa­cil­ity to be­come com­pletely cash-free.

Steve Can­non, CEO of Fal­cons and At­lanta United owner Arthur Blank’s AMB Group, says the new sys­tem of pur­chases will be faster and more cost ef­fi­cient. The sta­dium’s “fan friendly” prices on some items will be re­duced by 50 cents, with hot dogs $1.50 in­stead of $2.

Can­non says their re­search shows fans for both teams are ready for the move.
