If you’re heading to the 2021 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta, here’s the information you’ll need to make your day smooth.

Arrive early. Bring a mask and leave your purse at home unless it’s clear and the proper size.

Fans won’t be required but are strongly encouraged to wear a mask in any open-air areas, including the seating bowl, concourses and open-air suites. Masks will be required in any enclosed spaces.

Concessions will be contactless and cashless, with mobile payment and ordering options. The venue does not accept cash inside the stadium. Instead, patrons can pay with a card or mobile payment service like Apple Pay.

If you don’t have a card or mobile payment service, you can visit one of  10 card distribution kiosks throughout the stadium where cash can be loaded onto a prepaid Visa debit card with no transaction fee. Those cards can be used for purchases inside the stadium or anywhere else Visa is accepted.

Tickets are also mobile only. Fans can log into their account via the Peach Bowl Inc. app to access their order and present the ticket barcode at the gates.

Fans may only carry bags adhering to the following requirements:

  • Clear plastic, vinyl or PVC, and no larger than 12 inches by 6 inches by 12 inches
  • Small clutch bags, with or without a handle or strap, that do not exceed 4.5 inches by 6.5 inches, or about the size of a hand
  • An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at a gate designated for this purpose

Items typically carried in diaper or baby bags must be carried in a clear bag that meets bag policy standards.

Fans may bring items such as binoculars and cameras as long as they are not in cases, as well as smartphones into Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Guests with non-complying bags can store items for a fee outside the stadium. Bag valet stations are available.
