In about a year, New Orleanians will have to start getting used to calling the Superdome by a new name.

New Orleans Saints spokesman Greg Bensel confirmed Tuesday that Mercedes-Benz won't renew the naming rights to the Superdome. The end to the agreement with the German carmaker, which is set to expire in July 2021, has set off a search for another sponsor.




"The agreement is not being renewed, based on Mercedes-Benz having other opportunities," Bensel said. "Mercedes-Benz has been an excellent partner for our team, the building and our region. We could not have asked for a more well-respected global company to have as our inaugural naming rights partner."

The search marks just the second time in the Superdome's 45-year history that its naming rights have been up for grabs, and will end an unusual three years in which the Saints and arch-rival Atlanta Falcons both played in stadiums with the same sponsor.

I was just thinking about the dome yesterday and thinking if the dome would ever add glass panels to allow natural light in Maybe with a new sponsor, the new company would add a few glass panels. What do you think ?

It will always just be The Dome to me. Don't care who puts their name on it.

The Tabasco Super Dome has a nice ring to it.

I'm partial to the Slap Ya Mama Superdome as I put those seasonings on everything but my morning cereal.

That would have my vote, but the pansy asses out there would claim it was sexist and abusive. Love all the Slap My Mama products I've tried.

Tabasco and Slap Ya Mama combined don’t make that kind of money.
