Re: Sell the naming rights to the dome

Good for you SaintPaul.
Good luck.


SD question, HELL NO!!!!!!!!!
The Louisiana Superdome is the real name, but everyone calls it the New Orleans Superdome.

Benson Dome (like JerryJones, JoeRobbie)-NO!!
Pepsi Center (Denver,CO)-No!
StaplesCenter(CA)-NO!

You have a good point because many sports/concerts arenas/stadiums are being named after coporations or big sports owners.

I would hope N.O. SD's name is never changed which is a change being it is the LA SD..

Re: Sell the naming rights to the dome

I know this isn't really money related as far as naming rights, but someone help me out here. Wasn't there a push not long ago to have former governor John McKeithan's named added to the Dome? I know he was one of the major players in getting the construction of the Dome passed through Louisiana legislation. Maybe this was a dream, but I could have sworn I read something about this not long ago.

Re: Sell the naming rights to the dome

I believe you would have to add a corporations name as a prefix, soembody wrote "Tabasco Superdome" and something like that wouldn't bother me. But if it all of a sudden would be called the Wal-Mart Center that wouldn't fly with me. What would be a good thing is that it could fund further improvements to the dome to keep it up to date or possibly even serve as funding for a new stadium being constructed.

Re: Sell the naming rights to the dome

i hear they are going to have companies sponsor the entrance gate. So instead of walking into Gate A you may be walking into the Ford Entrance. and once you get inside they will have their advertisements

I like this one. The only other option would be the Boudreaux's Buttpaste Dome.

Re: Sell the naming rights to the dome

Up until this year, buying the name rights to the Superdome wasn't very attractive to firms outside Louisiana, and really not that attractive to local companies either. The Saints didn't exactly showed up every Sunday on games aired nationally.

Now that the Saints have won the SB and they are going to get more national broadcasts, it may attract interested parties outside Louisiana.

Local companies, Crystal is already "the official hot sauce of the New Orleans Saints"- and why not, it is pure Louisiana and delicious - but I wouldn't like the Dome be called "The Crystal Superdome". Sounds whimpy.

I will tell you this: Walmart gets the naming rights to the Dome, I will not watch a single game until that feces gets wiped off the name. I have never stepped a foot inside a Walmart, and I never will.
