Roof issues threaten to delay Atlanta Mercedes-Benz Stadium opening
ATLANTA - The Atlanta Falcons hope to have an update soon on whether issues regarding its new stadium - notably, its roof - will again delay its projected opening day.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that challenges in building the retractable roof of Mercedes-Benz Stadium also raise questions about whether the Falcons could play in the stadium before the roof is operable.
If not, would they have to play some home games elsewhere?
The Falcons say they'll have an update on the construction timeline within the next few days.
The newspaper reports issues with the complex roof have already delayed the opening twice, first pushing back the target from March 1 to June 1 and then pushing it back further to July 30.
