The largest LED video display in all of sports will be housed at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium..

Home of the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United FC, Mercedes-Benz Stadium is partnering with Daktronics on the first-of-its-kind 360-degree halo display, which will be manufactured and installed above the field as part of the stadium’s retractable roof. It will be nearly three times larger than the next largest video display in the NFL.

Additionally, a mega column LED display will stretch 101 feet from the first concourse level to the roof, adding to the 82,500 square feet of video displays throughout the entire stadium.

The halo display, which stands at 58 feet high by 1,075 in circumference, is large enough for a helicopter to fly through and 27 times larger than the current Georgia Dome video display. The 6,700 square foot four-sided display column will have more square footage than the main video display boards at 19 NFL venues and 24 MLB venues. Along with the halo and mega columns displays will be 12 other LED displays throughout Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
