Falcons' New Stadium Will Have Chick-Fil-A Restaurant That's Never Open

The new Atlanta Falcons' brand new billion-dollar stadium features a new Chick-Fil-A but if you're planning on attending one of the Falcons' eight home games you'll only get one chance in those eight games to eat at Chick-Fil-A because they don't open on Sunday.  

Seven of the Falcons' eight home games are scheduled for Sunday according to ESPN's Darren Rovell:

The franchise famous for its chicken sandwich is closed on Sundays, and only one of the team's eight home games isn't on a Sunday -- a Thursday night matchup against the New Orleans Saints on Dec. 7.

A source said the digital signage in the Chick-fil-A stand will be flipped when the stand is closed and it will be used by stadium concessionaire Levy to sell other nonbranded food and beverage items.

"Our founder, Truett Cathy, made the decision to close on Sundays in 1946 when he opened his first restaurant in Hapeville, Georgia," the company explains on its website. "Having worked seven days a week in restaurants open 24 hours, Truett saw the importance of closing on Sundays so that he and his employees could set aside one day to rest and worship if they choose -- a practice we uphold today."

So, why the Falcons decided to put a Chick-Fil-A restaurant inside their new stadium just doesn't make sense.  The stadium will be used for other events such as concerts and Atlanta United home games so it will be used eventually but still the internet had to make jokes:
