The New Orleans Saints NFL American football team has announced a new feature on its mobile app, through which fans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome can participate in a self-produced synchronised light show.

The interactive tool is designed to enhance the game-day atmosphere while players enter the Superdome field for their introductions, and as the Saints’ intro videos play on the big screen.

To participate in the light show, fans at the game will be required to activate their mobile device during the introduction period. Fans will need to download the most up-to-date version of the app and grant permission for it to use their device’s microphone, with the light activated by in-venue audio.

The Saints are encouraging fans to download the app, which is available on Apple and Android devices, before entering the Superdome and have their phones open ready before the introduction period. Once in the app, there will be a card under the ‘featured’ tab to engage the light show during pre-game instructions.

The feature, titled ‘Light up the Dome’, is presented by the Saints’ ticketing partner SeatGeek.
