Mercedes-Benz Stadium will begin testing a technology that eventually could give Falcons and Atlanta United fans the “option to enter the gates and shop the concession stands based on facial recognition,” according to Tim Tucker of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The trial will begin with “50 to 100 club-seats season ticket holders” at Saturday’s Atlanta United game, and testing “gradually will expand through the Falcons season this fall and well into next year.”
