ATLANTA - Some lucky sports fans won the opportunity to take a behind-the-scenes tour at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium Tuesday.
One of the stadium's founding partners, SCANA Energy, held a contest on its Facebook page last month for a chance to win a slot to tour the stadium. Ten people were selected and each winner was allowed to bring one guest.
FOX 5 was there Tuesday morning as the winners walked around the multi-purpose facility. They were greeted by Falcons cheerleaders as well as the team's mascot, Freddie Falcon.
SCANA Energy will provide natural gas service for the stadium and all Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United events.
Mercedes-Benz Stadium is scheduled to open next year.
