The Mercedes Benz Superdome Will Now Be Called “The Big Easy Mafia Superdome”

Posted by | May 20, 2020 .

If there were a Mount Rushmore of professional sporting cathedrals, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in the heart of downtown New Orleans would be on it. The historical venue is synonymous with iconic sports moments spanning generations, like Muhammad Ali’s 1978 heavyweight championship bout victory and Michael Jordan’s 1982 NCAA championship-winning shot. The Superdome’s cultural importance goes beyond sports, too: It also hosted the largest indoor concert (Rolling Stones, 1981) and Pope John Paul II’s papal address in 1987.

The New Orleans Saints host the best parties in the world at the Superdome ten to 12 times a year, depending on the length of their playoff run. With each passing event, the Superdome adds to its star power, which rivals that of other iconic venues like Madison Square Garden and Wembley Stadium.

The new name and sponsor of the Superdome has NOT been determined yet and unfortunately for us not going to be named “The Big Easy Mafia Superdome” but it sure looked and sounded good. Stay tuned for the announcement of the new Official Name.
