New Orleans Sports Venues

The Superdome may be the most famous of New Orleans’ sporting venues (and one of the largest in the country!) but there are plenty of other spaces, historic and modern, where you can catch the best action in sports. The Fair Grounds is the oldest site of racing in America still in operation. The New Orleans Arena hosts some of the nation’s most recognized names in basketball, plus a variety of state-of-the-art stadiums and fields, golf courses, driving ranges and more. Check these out below.
