Green and LEED-Certified Stadium Design

Though it remains to be seen whether the Atlanta Falcons will meet expectations for the season, the National Football League team’s athletic facility has already earned the highest marks when it comes to being green. In mid-November 2017, the 2 million-square-foot Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta became the world’s first LEED Platinum–certified professional sports stadium.

UNT's football team accomplished a ton despite season-ending slide

NEW ORLEANS — With the way Seth Littrell harped on it all year, it was hard not to focus on what North Texas didn't do in his second season with the Mean Green when it all came to an end on Saturday night.
