#1: The New Orleans Saints
The Saints have been the primary tenant of the building since it opened, and they have played many hundreds of games in the building over the years. The Saints have threatened to leave New Orleans more than once over the state of the building, but the city has always been able to come to an agreement on renovations more than once. The most recent talks centered around repairs after Hurricane Katrina struck the city in 2005. The building has seen the rise of Drew Brees as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, and the Saints have since won a Super Bowl.
#2: Super Bowls
The Superdome has been host to seven Super Bowls in its history. The city was immediately pegged to host Super Bowls by the growing National Football League. Super Bowls XII, XV, XX, XXIV, XXXI, XXXVI, and XLVII have been played in the building. The Cowboys, Raiders, Bears, 49ers, Packers, Patriots and Ravens have all won titles in this building, and the infamous blackout occurred in the middle of Super Bowl XLVII between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers.
The Superdome does not have a basketball tenant because the New Orleans Pelicans play in their own arena, but the building has hosted many different rounds of the NCAA Basketball Tournament. The expansion New Orleans Jazz used the building as their home with Pistol Pete Maravich leading the team until the squad was moved to Salt Lake City. The Final Four was hosted in the building in 1982, 1987, 1993, 2003, and 2012.
#4: Boxing Muhammed Ali fought his final bout in the building against Leon Spinks in 1978, but the most famous fight to occur in the building the "No Mas" fight between Sugar Ray Leonard and Roberto Duran. The famous ending to the fight saw Duran calling out "no mas" as Leonard backed him into the corner with a flurry of punches. The Superdome is a sporting icon that has always been there to host iconic sporting events, and it will continue to do so in the future. There is no end to the Super Bowls and Final Fours that can be hosted in this beautiful building.
