The Atlanta Falcons will host their first-ever training camp session inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Sunday, July 29. Practice will begin at 12:30pm and will be open to the public. A ticket fee of $5 will be charged for everyone that wishes to attend.

In addition, the parking lots will open at 8:30 a.m. ET with stadium gates and the Front Porch opening to the public at 11 a.m. There will also be live music, members of the Brotherhood Drumline will perform and the Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders will be in setting the stage for the most important part of the day.

The roof-opening ceremony will take place at 12pm (weather permitting). Youth flag football scrimmages and other live-event entertainment activites and games will take place inside. Once fully automated, the eight individual panels that comprise the stadium’s roof should open in as little as 12 minutes with the single push of a button.

Following the opening of the roof, the Falcons will take the field in full pads at 12:30 pm for the start of practice.

All ticket proceeds from the event will be used to benefit the Super Bowl LIII Legacy Project at Kennedy Park on Atlanta’s Westside.
