It shouldn’t be a surprise, but the realization caused a stir this week.

Like all other Chick-fil-A restaurants, the Chick-fil-A inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium will be closed on Sundays when the stadium opens.

Since the Falcons play seven out of eight home games on Sundays, the Chick-fil-A inside the stadium will be open for the Falcons’ Dec. 7 game against the New Orleans Saints.

The stadium’s Chick-fil-A will be open for all non-Sunday events like Atlanta United games, the SEC Championship, Chick-fil-A Kickoff Games and the Chick-fil-A Bowl.

Here’s what fans, the Falcons Twitter account and other teams had to say about the this week’s revelation:
