NFL Saints To Extend NOLA Deal Through 2025, Bid On Super Bowl 

Louisiana Superdome and surrounding area to get improvements, bid on Super Bowl XLVII. (Photo: Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District )April 30, 2009: The New Orleans Saints, the Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District and Louisiana officials are expected to unveil an agreement April 30 that would keep the NFL team in place through the 2025 season. The deal would have a direct impact on New Orleans' decision to bid on hosting Super Bowl XLVII in 2013, which will be chosen by the NFL at a meeting in May. Houston, Miami and Phoenix are others considered as top contenders for that event. The new deal involves improvements to the Louisiana Superdome, redevelopment of the area around the Superdome and other financial incentives being worked out among the team, the city and the state. The Saints current deal with the state to remain in the Superdome expires following the 2010 season, and NFL officials have said that the league would not consider a Super Bowl bid from any team without a stadium agreement in place. New Orleans has hosted nine Super Bowls but none since XXXVI in 2002. "I tried to get them to bid on 2012 but they wouldn't do it. We've got to work out with the state to get an extension to our lease, a long-term lease is what we prefer," Saints owner Tom Benson said following the NFL owners meeting last May when Indianapolis was selected to host Super Bowl XLVI in 2012. "But I think we're working on it. I feel good about it. I think we can get that together and we'll get the Super Bowl in 2013." The deal to keep the Saints in New Orleans involves the team, Gov. Bobby Jindal and LSED, headed by chairman Ron Forman. LSED is a state agency/political subdivision comprised of seven members appointed by the governor whose primary purpose is to plan, finance, construct, develop, maintain and operate facilities located within the District for events of public interest, including the Louisiana Superdome. Last November the NCAA selected the Superdome as the host for the men's basketball Division I Final Four in 2012.
