Time set for Falcons’ open practice at Mercedes-Benz Stadium

Atlanta Falcons will play 17 games in the 2021 NFL season.

After not hosting any fans during the 2020 exhibition season because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Falcons will hold an open practice at 2 p.m. Aug. 7 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Tickets cost $5. Proceeds will go to Emory Healthcare.

Because of current NFL protocols around COVID-19, there will not be opportunities for player autographs.

The team is set to report to Flowery Branch on July 27. The rest of the Falcons’ training-camp schedule will be announced at a later date, including open practices in Flowery Branch.
