ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Falcons have released a new video about its upcoming new stadium.

The video, entitled "New Atlanta Stadium: It's Coming," features animations of previously released artist renderings of the new $1.2 billion stadium.

"It was our vision to try to do something iconic, unique," said Falcons owner Arthur Blank in the video. "As a sports and entertainment venue, it'll be unmatched in the world."


The video promises that the new venue will host "the biggest events in the world" and shows footage from Falcons games, the SEC Championship game, NCAA Final Four games, Major League Soccer and concerts.

Atlanta's new MLS team will play in the new stadium, which is slated to open in 2017.
