The team and Tech also targeted ways to improve how quickly people can get into the stadium. The number of staff at gates will increase by an unannounced amount. There will be more signs at Gates 7, 8 and 9, which is where the team said there was the most congestion two weeks ago. The traffic should be reduced by the capacity of the stadium being reduced from 55,000 to 45,000 because of construction in the northern end of the stadium. Additionally, Atlanta United reminds those attending to have their tickets on their phones ready to show the ushers as they near the gates, and that there is a clear bag policy.
Lastly, after some in attendance used a homophobic chant during goal kicks in the previous game, Atlanta United has offered an alternate suggestion that's an homage to the Atlanta rap group, Outkast. The team asks that supporters shout "Hey" as the goalkeeper approaches the ball, and "Ya," as he kicks the ball. "Hey Ya!" is a popular song by Outkast. A team spokeswoman said the chant originated with the team's supporters.
The team has seven more games at Bobby Dodd Stadium before it moves into Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which it will open against Orlando City on July 30.
