The Atlanta Falcons' new stadium isn't scheduled to open until 2017, but the exciting news just keeps coming. The most recent development came from the official Twitter account of Reggie Roberts, the Vice President of Football Communications for the Falcons.

The stadium now has a name: Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Obviously, as many know, the New Orleans Saints play in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, which is locked in through 2021. The question is, will the company remove their name from New Orleans' stadium by 2017? Time will tell.

That's a good looking stadium.
