On Thursday, Louisiana's state bond commission is set to vote on the financing plan to renovate Mercedes-Benz Superdome, a project that is slated to transform the iconic 44-year-old stadium.

The costs for the project will be shared by the the Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District ($207 million), the New Orleans Saints ($150 million) and the state ($93 million).

There don't appear to be any barriers to approve the plan. So the biggest mysteries remain what the renovation will actually entail.

Officials have been tight-lipped so far, but here's a rundown of what we know officials are eyeing in their plans...



If approved, construction would take place in four phases over the next four years, starting in January 2020 after either the College Football Playoff Championship Game on Jan. 13 or the NFC Championship Game on Jan. 19.

Most of the major work would occur during the next four Saints offseasons, causing the stadium to be closed for most non-football events other than the annual Essence Fest, the 2020 College Football Playoff championship game and the men’s NCAA Final Four in April 2022. Officials hope to complete the project before New Orleans hosts Super Bowl LVIII Feb. 4, 2024.

We have an Icon and it needs renovations from time to time. Jerry world and the sphincter dome are ugly as sin. We don't need new. We need the Super dome!
