Saints looking for sponsors to have naming rights on the Superdome
1 Attachment(s)
  • For as long as anyone can remember, the home of the New Orleans Saints has been the Louisiana Superdome. Now in the time of corporate sponsorship though, it appears as if Louisiana is jumping in the boat to get one for the Dome. A photo taken by an eyewitness actually showed a sign outside the Dome recently that was only there a short period of time and read "Mercedes-Benz Superdome."

    Other eyewitnesses confirmed this happened and that the sign was also rolled back up by crews a short time later.
    On Thursday night, Saints Vice President of Communications Greg Bensel confirmed what some saw and said the team has been pitching the naming-rights idea to several different companies. The sign photographed was only one of many that have already been made actually.

The "Slap Yo Mamma" Superdome.

Anything not local will be unacceptable.

They can name it whatever they want. I will never call it anything other than the Superdome anyways.

Louisiana Taxpayers paid for it (at five times cost promised) and now that's not enough...

The New Orleans Saints are in the city through the 2025 season after signing a lease extension with the state back in April of 2009. Terms of the new contract state that the Saints keep 100 percent of the naming rights revenue which means a big-time company coming in and buying the rights could mean serious money for the organization.

But, seriously, if that statement is true... at least it would guarantee that the Saints would probably be able to continue to spend right up to the salary cap in seasons to come.

Didn't they try this before with no luck? I guess a winning team now will make a difference?

Naming rights only matter if the stadium is mentioned frequently on National TV. Which means that the Saints must be competitively relevant over the rights period. Payton's locked through 15, Brees is 31 and no contract. We don't have a history of continuity. My bet is that we'll need several more years of high profile presence to merit naming rights.

That being said, I like Tabasco Dome. or, the BP Dome (they owe us).

I know that there is money to be had but I think Green Bay has it right and will keep it named after someone affiliated with the organisation (I know that the people own this team in part so that will have an effect) I hated when Huskie Stadium, Candlestick Park and RFK disappeared. Corporations have there fingers in so many pies it sickens me...I really hate finger pie.
