Take A Look Inside The Brand New £1.38 Billion Stadium Of Atlanta United
In the current world, with the advances of technology, we are seeing more and more modernised football stadiums.
It's difficult these days to maintain a level of atmosphere that was present in older grounds, when clubs move into a shiny new arena, but it's all about developing the club and changing with the times.
Manchester City and Arsenal have both done it with the Etihad and Emirates Stadium and Chelsea and Tottenham are set to follow suit.
The designs for Serie A giants Roma's new stadium are a far cry from the old-fashioned Stadium Olimpico that they have shared with rivals Lazio for so many years.
And one of the most impressive arenas for football is about to be open.
The Mercedes-Benz Stadium will be the home of MLS franchise Atlanta United, who will join the Eastern Conference in the league in 2017. The intention for the stadium is for it to eventually replace the historic Georgia Dome. The stadium will also house Atlanta's NFL team the Falcons.
The first match in the stadium will be United's match with Orlando City on September 16th before the Falcons have their first match their two days later against the Green Bay Packers

The design includes an eight-panel retractable roof, with the circular opening said to be inspired by the Roman Pantheon. Assembling such an incredible stadium doesn't come on the cheap though, with the overall cost believed to be in the $1.5 million region.
An arena of this quality is expected to host a number of significant events in the near future and is already slated to host the Super Bowl LIII in 2019.
