Super Bowl LIX coming to New Orleans

The 2025 Super Bowl will mark the 11th time New Orleans has hosted the Super Bowl, and for the first time since 2013.


State and city leaders alike are preparing to welcome hundreds of thousands of football fans into the city for Super Bowl LIX, which is scheduled for Feb. 9, 2025.


“For the 11th time, we’ll come together and show the NFL, hundreds of thousands of visitors, the country and the world why New Orleans is so often chosen to host the Super Bowl,” said Owner of the New Orleans Saints and Pelicans Gayle Benson


City and state leaders are hoping to get it right this time and are aware if they do, it will be big for all of Southeast Louisiana.


"Well, it's great publicity, but it's also an economic shot in the arm. And there'll be people staying in Baton Rouge, driving to New Orleans. The hotels will be sold out in the whole region, the whole state," Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser said.


Nungesser said the state put up billboards throughout Las Vegas this year promoting next year's Super Bowl, looking to draw fans to New Orleans.


Despite the wealth of experience in NOLA about putting on Super Bowls, Mayor LaToya Cantrell and other leaders are in Vegas right now learning how to make it the best one yet.


On Wednesday at Club XLIV in Champions Square, Governor Jeff Landry, Mayor LaToya Cantrell and Benson and the New Orleans Super Bowl LIX Host Committee were led by the New Orleans Saints and the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation. They recognized its committee chairs, provided a Caesars Superdome renovation update and announced sponsors.


Landry said he’s confident New Orleans will execute a successful Super Bowl despite the city’s challenges.

“This state and the people of this city are going to rise to whatever challenge we need to do exactly what Miss Gayle said, and it is to make the Super Bowl one of the best events that has ever been held, not only in New Orleans but in the country,” said Landry.
