Superdome And Saints Working On A Long Term Deal
The New Orleans Saints' current Superdome lease expires in 2025. The team and stadium officials are working on an extension to keep the team in the iconic structure through 2035, according to report from nola.com. Governor John Bel Edwards has reportedly thrown his support behind the tentative agreement. The Superdome is 44 years old. Several NFL cities have constructed new, billion dollar stadiums in recent years. The league has a recent history of awarding Super Bowls to cities with new stadiums. The plan will reportedly include a $450 million dollar renovation. More Super Bowls have been played in New Orleans than any other city. The Crescent City is an ideal location, given the proximity, and abundance of hotels and restaurants.
