We’ve heard for weeks how the new Falcons Stadium in Atlanta will transform into a MLS venue in 2017. It appears we finally have a glimpse of what the $1.2 billion stadium will do when it does indeed transform from a NFL venue to a MLS venue.

The new team, which was officially announced last week and will be owned by Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, has released a video showing how the upper sections will be closed off to give the stadium an ‘intimate soccer environment’ similar to BC Place, home of the Vancouver Whitecaps.

I don’t know about you but I assumed all along there would be a little more to it than this. I know they kept saying it would be similar to BC Place but this appears to be almost identical. I guess the big deal is more in the second deck of seats in how they are automatically covered up. I do know that can be tough to do in a stadium without some special technology.

The stadium, which will open in 2017 will also feature movable lower-bowl seats and a retractable roof.

I still believe that if Blank was speaking the truth about the no football lines on the field during his press conference last week, that may be a bigger deal than this technology to cover up the top bowl of seats.
