The New Orleans Saints and Tulane University share a rich history together. The Saints played at the former Tulane Stadium on the schools’ Uptown campus for their first eight years of their existence from 1967-74. When the Mercedes-Benz Superdome was constructed, Tulane played at the same facility until Yulman Stadium’s 2014 debut.

Most recently, late Saints Owner Tom Benson and current Owner Gayle Benson supported Tulane’s construction of on-campus Yulman Stadium, with the Green Wave making their debut on “Benson Field” in 2014. The club first held a practice at Yulman Stadium in 2015 and have worked out on campus for the fans once each preseason during the last two training camps.
