The Falcons new stadium reportedly has a fast food chain that will be impossible for Sunday football fans to enjoy — Chick-fil-A

Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the new home of the Atlanta Falcons, has a ton of new features for sports fans to enjoy, including an amazing circular Jumbotron the likes of which NFL viewers have never seen.

But included in all of the perks of the new stadium is one addition that seems glaringly unfit: a Chick-fil-A.

At first it seems like a likely pairing — Chick-fil-A is based in Atlanta and there's no doubt that any stadium in the country could benefit from selling their delicious sandwiches, shakes, and waffle fries. But as any person who had a craving for chicken on the wrong day can tell you, Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays. Which presents a pretty obvious problem for a franchise operating around an NFL schedule.

ESPN's Darren Rovell was first to report that the new stadium would feature a Chick-fil-A, but was quick to note that Zaxby's would be the "official chicken of the Falcons" and that Chick-fil-A had no plans to change its tradition.

Chick-fil-A keeps its locations closed on Sundays for both religious reasons and employee welfare; even locations in airports, shopping malls, and other high traffic areas abide by the rule. This year, the Falcons play just one home game outside of a Sunday — a Thursday Night Football matchup against the New Orleans Saints.
