For its role in the contemporary history of New Orleans, the Louisiana Superdome is not merely a stadium ? it is true icon of the city. It is the home of Super Bowl XLIV Champions, the New Orleans Saints. The stadium saw the rise of the Saints from perennial bottom-dwellers to this decade?s NFL powerhouse.
The Louisiana Superdome embodies the revival spirit of not only the Saints, but also the city of New Orleans itself. The dome was destroyed when Hurricane Katrina hit the United States in 2005. The dome was transformed into an evacuation center for the victims. The Saints? Super Bowl championship came two years after the reopening of the dome and the recovery of the city, highlighting one of the most memorable stories in modern sports history.
The Louisiana Superdome is also notable for holding the most number of Super Bowls at 6. The stadium is also used for BCS football championships, NCAA Final Four and concerts.
