Mayor Cantrell 'hopeful' about full attendance at Saints home games in the fall

Will the Mercedes-Benz Superdome be at full capacity when the New Orleans Saints start the 2021 season?

New Orleans mayor LaToya Cantrell seems optimistic.

"I absolutely feel that we are on track for that and Iím hopeful," Cantrell said. "I really am."

Cantrell spoke to media members on Tuesday during an event about the NCAA men's basketball tournament Final Four, which will be held in New Orleans in 2022.

Afterward, she spoke briefly about the NFL season, which is just five months away.



NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in late March that he expects stadiums to be full in the fall, unlike this past season when COVID-19 mitigation efforts limited attendance throughout the league.

"It's never too early to hope," Cantrell said. "That hope needs to translate into action. That action is getting fully vaccinated. While we are doing very well in that, we are going to continue on that path and trend. Again, going to where our people are so that we can be the safest place to live as well as visit. So we're ready."

Should be opened up. A lot of vaccines being given out over here. Less COVID patients in the ICU.

Get your shots and go to the games! The more people who get shots the less Covid we'll have and we can open The Caesar's Super Dome and New Orleans. If we continue like we have been with injections we'll be there to support our Saints.

Agree completely. One option, however, is to require proof of vaccination to attend. Anti-vaxer's can ruin this for everyone.

Iíve received my first shot. I recommend people get their vaccinations. That being said, requiring people to prove their status before being allowed to participate in society is a very bad idea IMO. I really donít want to go into specifics and get into a long debate about this. Just my 2 cents.

As a private entity the NFL could set any requirements they wish. Many travel related companies are doing just that (mandatory vaccinations). That said, we get our second shot on Monday.
