The Atlanta Falcons have been trying to build a more college-like atmosphere at the Georgia Dome by getting fans to the dome earlier. It started with the first home game against the Arizona Cardinals but a large number of fans were still late arriving. They'll try again to get fans excited before the first quarter starts with more discounts, giveaways and fiery tailgate celebrations. Jay Adams of the official site has the details:
Beginning when gates to the Dome open at 11 a.m. through 12:30 p.m., fans can take advantage of Early Bird food and merchandise discounts.
The Early Bird food options include the Falcons Family Plan, which includes four hot dogs, four bags of chips, four sodas and four candy items, all for $40. The Falcons Combo Plan, consisting of two hot dogs, two bags of chips, two sodas and two candy items is available for $20.
Additionally, the club is offering bottomless specials for souvenir sodas ($6.00) and popcorn ($5.50) throughout the game. These specials are available at all concession locations that serve those two items.
Fans who want to purchase Falcons merchandise on game day will receive $10 off purchases of $50 or more and $20 off purchases of $100 or more at all Falcons365 locations in the Dome. These specials are available until 12:30 p.m.
For fans tailgating outside of the Dome, a pyrotechnic salute will launch from Falcons Landing at 12:15 p.m., signaling it’s time to begin the "Journey to the Dome."
