The New Orleans Saints NFL team has unveiled the latest renovations at the Caesars Superdome as part of its five-year project to transform the stadium.

The Superdome has been undergoing extensive renovation work worth $450m (£351m/€412m) ahead of its hosting of the Super Bowl in 2025. The project is a collaborative effort between the Saints, the Louisiana Stadium & Exposition District (LSED) and the State of Louisiana.

The Saints yesterday (Monday) revealed details of the 100 level sideline experiences that fans will be able to sample from next year. The nearly completed east sideline is now almost twice as wide in some places, while new concession areas have been added and ramps have been removed to provide a much easier flow of people.

The former Miller Lite Club on the 100 level at Gate H has been replaced with a large lobby entrance with an atrium and escalator system, with a similar approach taken in the northeast corner of Gate B. A third atrium will be added next year in the southeast corner of the stadium.

For the 2023 NFL season, the Saints will add a Premium Patrons Entrance at Gate C, where escalators and new elevators will take guests from the ground 000 to the 400 level. The redevelopment of the 200 level on the east side of the stadium, where the Legends Sideline Club currently resides, will allow fans to end up centrally located on the sideline.

The Saints said the Legends Sideline Club will feel like an “entirely new space” with a range of seating opportunities, different concessions and access to restrooms that anchor the club on both ends.

In July 2021, the Saints signed a 20-year partnership with Caesars Entertainment for naming rights to the stadium. The deal is worth a reported $138m and the Saints have pledged to spend the income on the Superdome renovation project.
