The Mercedes-Benz Superdome opened in 1975, and has been home to the New Orleans Saints ever since. At its time of completion, The Superdome was the largest dome structure in the world with the maximum capacity just over 72,000. The Georgia Dome in Atlanta, and the Millennium Dome in London later surpassed it. In addition to serving as home to the Saints, The Superdome is home to Tulane University’s college football team, as well as the annual home to the Sugar Bowl. The Superdome has been home to many other events throughout its history, including more Super Bowls than any other venue, hosting six. The famed venue has also played host to four NCAA Final Four Tournaments, the latest coming in 2003, as well as four BCS National Championship games, the most recent in 2008.
In 2005, The Louisiana Superdome served as a “shelter of last resort” for victims of Hurricane Katrina. Then the Superdome was closed for over a year, and underwent a $193 million to repair and refurbish the Superdome. The Superdome was re-opened in 2006 on a Monday Night Football game against the Atlanta Falcons.
