  Caesars gets
naming rights to
NOLA stadium
NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Saints and Caesars Entertainment announced the formation of a 20-year, exclusive naming-rights partnership that rebrands New Orleans’ iconic downtown stadium as the Caesars Superdome.
Caesars Superdome will host all Saints home football games and Super Bowl LIX to be played in February 2025. The building will also host the 2022 NCAA Men’s Final Four, the annual Sugar Bowl and College Football Playoffs and a variety of concerts and events.
“All of us at Caesars are proud
to be part of New Orleans’ vibrant culture. We understand that the Caesars Superdome is more than an iconic venue, it’s the symbol of a resilient and innovative community,” said Tom Reeg, CEO of Caesars Entertainment. “We’ve had a strong relationship with the New Orleans Saints for nearly two decades and we are thrilled with the opportunity to strengthen it and celebrate our commitment to the city, the state, and the entire Gulf Coast region.”
In the past five years, Caesars Entertainment has led with its
heart in the Pelican State, giving more than $30 million directly
into community non-profits and services. Through a combination
of volunteer hours, grants from
the Caesars Foundation, and donations supporting local non- profit programs dedicated to disadvantaged populations, tourism, and infrastructure, Caesars remains committed to the state of Louisiana and its residents.
Caesars Entertainment, the parent company of Harrah’s New Orleans, is in the midst of a $325 million renovation and construction project to transform the property into Caesars New Orleans.
Caesars Entertainment is also the parent company of Harrah’s Gulf Coast in Biloxi.
