A sneak peek into the nearly finished Mercedes-Benz Stadium

We're getting a sneak preview.

ATLANTA - After some delays, we are finally getting a much awaited sneak peek into our shiny and beautiful Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

According to Arthur Blank, the Atlanta Falcons owner, the stadium is slated to open later this summer and crews are in the final months of construction.

The stadium will have custom lighting, a retractable roof and 1,200 more beer taps than the Georgia Dome. Officials said that dining will be top-notch -- with zero percent mark-up. 

The stadium, which cost at least $1.5 billion, was originally scheduled to be completed last month, but delays have pushed that date back.  The first preseason game is scheduled for Aug. 26.
