Continuing Atlanta’s sustainability leadership role, MBS is slated to open in mid-2017 as the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum Certified professional stadium in the world. MBS will serve as the home of the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League and Atlanta United FC of the Major League Soccer.

In his opening slide, Scott states: MBS will be the Heart of Atlanta and home to the biggest championships in the United States. The following slide substantiates the claim with a list of secured championships including, but not limited to, the 2019 Super Bowl and the 2020 NCAA Men’s Final Four. Additionally, the list of sustainability accomplishments is staggering.
