Champions Square, a 60,000-square-foot plot encompassing a one-block section of LaSalle Street and part of what was once the New Orleans Centre shopping mall, officially opened on August 21, 2010 as the Saints hosted an exhibition game against the Houston Texans. Now, after many years of waiting, Saints fans and others who don't have tickets to the games, have a place to hang out and party and cheer the home team on.

Champions Square comfortably accommodates up to 8,000 revelers. It is free and easily accessible, thanks to an abundance of convenient nearby parking. Saints fans will at least have a square that features live entertainment, street vendors and some of New Orleans' favorite eateries. Among the food vendors with concessions in the square are Red Fish Grill, Acme Oyster House, Drago's, Bourbon House Seafood, Dickie Brennan’s Steakhouse, Wow Café and Wingery, The Praline Connection, Outback Steakhouse and Galatoire's.

Wall of Champions

In the three and a half decades since the Superdome was built, many historic moments in sports history have taken place there. Muhammad Ali became the first heavyweight boxing champion to win the title three separate times with his September 1978 win over Leon Spinks. In 1982 future NBA great Michael Jordan sank a basket that gave the University of North Carolina the NCAA Championship during a Final Four tournament held in the Dome. Six NFL Super Bowls have taken place there, along with all but one Sugar Bowl game since the stadium opened in 1975. Three BCS National Championship games have been played there, as well as four Final Four tourneys.

Many of these great moments in Superdome and sports history are among the most prominent features of Champions Square. The Wall of Champions displays 30-foot photos of past championship teams and individual champions from the city, including Saints teams that won their division championships and this year's Super Bowl winners. Among those featured are former Saints linebacker Rickey Jackson, a recent inductee to the Pro Football Hall of Fame; Super Bowl XLIV MVP Drew Brees; Muhammad Ali, and Michael Jordan.


For convenient parking on Saints game days, parking is available in Champions Garage. Accommodating over 2,000 vehicles, Champions Garage is located on Girod Street, just steps away from Champions Square, the Superdome and New Orleans Arena where the NBA New Orleans Hornets play their home games. For more information, including rates and availability, call (504) 587-3571.
