ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Football season is finally upon us and the Atlanta Falcons will host their first game in the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Saturday night.

The Falcons will play the Arizona Cardinals while showing off the billion dollar stadium in the pre-season game.

The centerpiece of the stadium, the retractable roof, will have to stay closed for now due to construction delays.

CBS46 reporter Adam Harding took a look at the final few hours before kickoff.
