Chick-fil-A in new Falcons stadium will still be closed Sundays

As Southerners are well aware, Chick-fil-A is famously closed on Sundays. What better place than at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, particularly with the upcoming Chick-fil-A Kickoff Games, Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl and Atlanta United matches.

The only non-Sunday home game on the Falcons' 2017 schedule is on Thursday, Dec. 7, against the New Orleans Saints.

It's well known in these parts that if you're craving Chick-fil-A on a Sunday, you're out of luck. All but one of the Falcons' home games this season will be played on Sundays.

Zaxby's recently signed a five-year deal with the Falcons to earn the moniker and become sponsors, even though they do not now have a location in Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

It feels like unfinished business for a player who left Manchester for Turin over a his lack of first-team chances at Old Trafford .

Mercedes-Benz Stadium is set to open for the Falcons and Atlanta United games in August, according to The Washington Post.

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.

But Falcons fans probably won't be happy to hear that the restaurant won't be changing its hours.

A source told ESPN's Darren Rovell that the digital signage at the Chick-fil-A concession stand will be flipped when it is closed on Sunday. Chick-Fil-A, which CNBC noted is the country's favorite chicken chain, is not open on Sundays. Its products are not now offered at the stadium.
