Atlanta United will play its first MLS game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Sept. 10.

Single-game tickets for Atlanta United matches at Mercedes-Benz Stadium will go on sale to Founder’s Club members and seat-licenses holders Wednesday.

The MLS franchise announced that and several other key dates Friday.

Additionally, sales of group tickets to games will go on sale to the public Thursday, and single-game tickets will go on sale to the public July 24.

The team will play its first match at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Sept. 10 when it hosts FC Dallas. Atlanta United will host eight games in the regular season at the $1.5 billion stadium under construction next to the Georgia Dome.

With the exception of two games, Atlanta United games at Mercedes-Benz Stadium will have a capacity of 42,500, but that may vary slightly. The team is exploring standing-room-only options. For the game against Orlando City on Sept. 16 and the regular-season finale against Toronto on Oct. 22, the stadium’s capacity will be increased by an undetermined amount.

Atlanta United leads MLS in attendance with an average of 46,482 through eight games. The team is playing at Georgia Tech’s Bobby Dodd Stadium.
