Fans will have a lot to look forward to as they head to Mercedes-Benz Stadium to watch Atlanta United’s home opener against FC Cincinnati.

Starting on March 10, in order to increase the speed of transactions, Mercedes-Benz Stadium will become the first NFL and Major League Soccer stadium to go institute a cashless model.

This announcement comes after stadium officials decided to abandon their whole dollar pricing model which initially was created to help increase transaction times.

“Arthur Blank repeatedly challenges us to find ways to improve further operations across our businesses,” said AMB Group CEO Steve Cannon. “Our fans are our most important influencers and we want to ensure they have the level of service they’ve come to expect from Mercedes-Benz Stadium.”

With the stadium moving to cashless transactions, it will include ten cash to card kiosks around the stadium for customers who prefer to carry cash or not use their own card.

These prepaid cards will be able to use not only inside the stadium but outside the stadium as well.

Along with higher transaction speeds, cashless transactions brings the benefits of creating flexibility for prices on food and beverages and keeping lower prices.

Lower prices meaning that the stadium will have price cuts on its most popular items. Eleven percent of the top five items will have a price reduction.

The top five selling items includes hot dogs (most selling), pretzel bites, ATL Bud burger, ice cream waffle cone, and chips and salsa.

Fans can expect to see a 50 cent price reduction on these items Sunday.

The first stadium to go cashless was Tropicana Field in Tampa, Florida.
