It’s official: Caesars Superdome, the new home of the Saints
As we’re about a month away from NFL football, the New Orleans Saints have a new official home: the Caesars Superdome.
We thought it was only a matter of time since interest was announced in March, but now we can prepare for a unique and interesting partnership between the Superdome, the Saints and Caesars Entertainment.
The original story for March is below.
Because the Atlanta Falcons want to be the New Orleans Saints so badly, Mercedes-Benz was forced to withdraw naming rights to the New Orleans Superdome after purchasing the naming rights to the Atlanta Falcons’ new stadium, the Mercedes-Benz Dome.
This meant that the naming rights for the Black and Gold team’s house were on the market, and there were rumors of many potential suitors, including the adult website “Stripchat.”“Can you imagine the Stripchat Superdome …?”
There is still hope among a fan base that their team’s stadium naming rights will be something subjectively “cool” – a mark that immediately evokes class and that cool factor. Does anyone really want the Dollar Tree Superdome to be a thing?
Well, it looks like after a year of reviewing offers from different companies, the Superdome may finally have a new sponsor: Caesar’s Entertainment.
This is important because the Superdome will be the first stadium in the NFL with a sponsor of the game-based naming rights. Caesar’s Entertainment is Harrah’s parent company.

The actual name of the Superdome is still unclear, but Caesar’s is certainly something a lot of casual fans can support. Caesar’s is the parent company of Harrah’s Casino, located in New Orleans. A partnership here would create the first NFL stadium named after a casino.
Looks like there’s a new name coming up. Believe that this would make the Superdome the first stadium named after an NFL casino. https://t.co/WDtIDbcOgr

There is already a lot of mix between Saints and Harrah’s, as fans who attend the games regularly are aware of the various in-game giveaways and videos sponsored by Harrah’s Casino. An official name sponsorship could also serve to develop this pairing, and it would not be surprising to eventually see kiosks in the stadium where bets could be placed live during and before the match.
Stay tuned for more details if and when a new name is officially announced.
