Caesar’s Entertainment reportedly set to purchase naming rights for Superdome
Because the Atlanta Falcons want so badly to be the New Orleans Saints, Mercedes-Benz was forced to withdraw naming rights at the New Orleans Superdome after purchasing the naming rights for the Falcons’ new stadium. Atlanta, the Mercedes-Benz Dome.
This meant that the naming rights for the Black and Gold team house were on the market, and there were rumors of many potential suitors, including the adult “Stripchat” website. Can you imagine the Stripchat Superdome …?
There is always hope among a fan base that their team’s stadium naming rights will be something subjectively “cool” – a mark that immediately evokes class and that cool factor. Does anyone really want the Dollar Tree Superdome to be a thing?
Well, it looks like after a year of reviewing offerings from different companies, the Superdome may finally have a new sponsor: Caesar’s Entertainment.
This is important because the Superdome will be the first stadium in the NFL with a sponsor of the game-based naming rights. Caesar’s Entertainment is Harrah’s parent company.

The actual name of the Superdome is not yet clear, but Caesar’s is certainly something a lot of casual fans can support. Caesar’s is the parent company of Harrah’s Casino, located in New Orleans. A partnership here would create the first NFL stadium named after a casino.
Looks like there’s a new name coming up. Believe it would make the Superdome the first stadium named after an NFL casino. https://t.co/WDtIDbcOgr

There is already a lot of mix between Saints and Harrah’s, as fans who attend the games regularly are aware of the various in-game giveaways and videos sponsored by Harrah’s Casino. An official name sponsorship could also serve to develop this pairing, and it would not be surprising to eventually see kiosks in the stadium where bets could be placed live during and before the match.
Stay tuned for more details if and when a new name is officially announced.
