New Orleans Saints Football
2016 Season

Win or loose, a Saints game is never boring. Game day in New Orleans is a must-do experience, from the pre-game concerts in Champion Square to the Saintsations and energy of the fans in the Superdome. There are only a few chances left to be a part of the season, so get your tickets before they sell out!

Like most Saints games, a sellout is very likely, but last minute tickets are nearly always available, either at the box office or from the NFL Ticketmaster Ticket Exchange. Visit the Superdome’s website for the schedule and advance ticket purchase or use Ticketmaster for last minute tickets.

Where to Watch

For those unable to purchase tickets or who prefer to watch the game on television, many sports bars in the French Quarter/downtown area or elsewhere in the city will be tuned in to the action. Click here for a listing of local sports bars go to.

“An Entertainment Extravaganza”

Over nearly half a century, since coming into existence on All Saints’ Day, 1966, the Saints can boast of having some of the most loyal and dedicated (rabid, even!) fans among the NFL’s 32 teams. And the most colorful. A Saints game is more than just a bone-crunching contest between two teams moving a ball back and forth between white parallel lines.

A Saints game is an entertainment extravaganza that defies description. Fans, known as “Who Dats” dress up in colorful costumes that only the most creative imaginations on the planet could devise. Handkerchief-waving second-line dancing through the stands; Mardi Gras Indian “big chiefs” decked out in their splashy beaded and feathered outfits; voodoo priests and priestesses casting victory spells for the team. This is only a small sampling of the fun and entertainment that plays out in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome for a Saints home game.

Come out and cheer for the home team or even your own home team if that’s who the Saints happen to be playing on any given weekend.

For tickets and information go to or call (504) 731-1700. For information on the team itself, go to the Saints’ official site,
