SPECTACULAR NEW SUPERDOME UPGRADES COMING IN 2010 & 2011

NEW ORLEANS, LA – September 28, 2009 – One of the busiest multi-purpose stadiums since opening in 1975, the Louisiana Superdome is getting ready for some big changes. Several upgrades will modernize this historic venue with the most cutting edge features.

The majority of these slated upgrades will take place Jan. 2011 - June 2011 (the Louisiana Superdome will be closed during the renovation period with the exception of NCAA Men’s Regionals in March 2011).

They will include:

  • New Sideline Seating
    The sideline seats on the Plaza Level will be completely replaced, moving patrons closer to the action, with improved sightlines. The new seating units will include an addition of approximately 3,100 seats.

  • Expanded Plaza Concourse
    At key points on the east and west sides, the Dome’s Plaza Level concourse will be widened from 18ft to 60ft. This will provide better access, additional food service areas, restrooms, ADA seating and specialty stands. The new concourse will also have updated flooring, lighting, murals, color scheme and signage.

  • New Premium Club Lounges
    Located under the East and West sides of the new Plaza Level stands, these new premium clubs will feature private entry access directly from parking garage, an upscale environment for private events, and high-end amenities such as: a fixed bar, lounge & table seating, television monitors & private restrooms.

  • Additional 300 Level Suites
    The Press Box will be relocated to the Terrace Level at the 50 yard line. New luxury suites will be added on the 300 level where the Press Box is currently located.
  • Party Deck at Gate A (Endzone)
    A private party deck will be added to the Endzone at Gate A on the Plaza Level.

Winning the Super Bowl bid for 2013, among a variety of other big-named sporting events, also gives valuable impetus to the development of the area between the Superdome and the central business corridor. The Benson family has announced plans to purchase the 26-story Dominion Tower and a cooperative agreement with the State for development of a Plaza Festival area on the adjacent property. The result will be revitalization of an area important to the city’s economy while enhancing the game day experience for sports fans. This new Sports Development Complex will include the following:

  • Outdoor Festival Plaza
    This will be a 70,000 sq. ft. space located from the expansion of Gate C Bridge of the Superdome through the existing New Orleans Centre atrium & mall ending at the current, existing portechere of the Hyatt hotel. This space will be used for public and private special events. This facility will be managed by the Louisiana Sports and Exposition District (LSED)
  • Dominion Tower
    The Benson family has taken ownership of the Dominion Tower and will lease the facility to State Officials for office space.

These exciting updates will have a long-lasting impact on not only the Louisiana Superdome’s clientele but also the state economy. The flexibility of the venue coupled with the state of the art upgrades will bring new business to the venue and more attraction to hosting events in New Orleans. The recent acquisition of major sporting events like the Super Bowl in 2013 and the Men’s NCAA Final Four Tournament in 2012, just to name a few, proves that New Orleans is a major event city and these spectacular upgrades to the Superdome will ensure that it will continue to be so.
