Fans can purchase parking through the Atlanta-based Park Mobile, using the Falcons, Atlanta United or Mercedes-Benz Stadium apps or Park Mobile offers 13,000 parking spaces, and fans can secure parking prior to events to save money from buying a parking space on the day of the event.

If you want directional assistance during game days or events, download and use Waze for turn-by-turn directions. Type the lot name into Waze, select the lot, then select “Go” to be navigated to the lot. In addition to this, all parking passes will have a direct link to the lot that you select.

The stadium offers MARTA pickup locations at the stadium. The stadium also has taxi stands available. The most reliable places to direct guests are the Upper Andrew Young International Boulevard, around Phillips Arena, GWCC main entrance or the Omni Hotel. Guests will exit Gate 2, Gate 3 or Gate 4 and walk across International Plaza to the taxi stands.

Here’s what security will allow in Mercedes-Benz:

  • Bags and totes that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12"X6"X12";
  • One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar);
  • Small clutch bags, approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap

Note that exceptions will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at any gate. Diapers can be carried in a clear bag, as opposed to a traditional diaper bag.

Binoculars, cameras and smart phones are allowed as long as the item is not in its own bag.

Clear seat cushions and seat pads without pockets, zippers, compartments or covers are permitted. Blankets are allowed to be carried in.

If a guest has an item that isn’t allowed in the stadium, four bag valet locations will be available for a fee near the entry gates.

Here are the prohibited items:

  • Purses larger than a clutch bag;
  • Coolers;
  • Briefcases;
  • Backpacks;
  • Fanny packs;
  • Cinch bags;
  • Non-approved seat cushions, including large traditional seat cushions that have pockets, zippers, compartments or covers. You can have your cushion examined at the club guest services office;
  • Luggage of any kind;
  • Computer bags;
  • Camera bags;
  • Any bag larger than the permissible size

Fans carrying bags that do not meet the criteria will be turned away from the stadium well before they reach the gates.
