Falcons owner Arthur Blank says the stadium will cost one and a half billion dollars to complete. That amount is 100 million more than the most recent estimate and a half a billion more than when the stadium was first announced.
The NFL has fined the Atlanta Falcons, stripped the organization of a draft pick and suspended team president Rich McKay from the league's competition committee beginning April 1 following the team's use of fake noise at home games.
The unanimous opinion published Monday by the Georgia Supreme Court says the financing structure does not violate the state Constitution. Construction of the stadium for the Atlanta Falcons is already well underway.
