The Superdome in downtown New Orleans. This building is often referred to as “The House of The Rising Sun” and hosts the New Orleans Saints.

“Who Dat! Who Dat! Who Dat say they gon’ beat dem Saints?!?!” This battle cry can be heard echoing around the city during the New Orleans Saints NFL Games. The team was almost forced to leave the city because of the damage Hurricane Katrina caused to the Superdome. But after $185 million was spent repairing and refurbishing the stadium, the Saints returned a year later and began a new chapter in franchise history, Quarterback Drew Brees joined the team, along with Head Coach Sean Payton, a year after Hurricane Katrina. Since then, they have turned the team that were nicknamed the “Aints” into Super Bowl champions just 4 short years after Katrina. Come to New Orleans and enjoy a game in the 2nd loudest stadium in the United States. And while you’re there, stroll through Champion Square. Just steps away from the Superdome, Champions Square highlights the great players and moments in New Orleans Saints history. We also recommend you visit the “Rebirth” statue featuring former Saints player Steve Gleason, who is heralded as local hero here in New Orleans.
