Superdome upgrades to enhance football fan experience

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Saints fans can look forward to upgrades at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome this coming season.

Superdome workers showed off Aug. 24 new video boards designed to enhance the fan experience. They're 333 feet wide and 38 feet tall. That's a 900 percent increase from previous boards.

Other improvements include 64 renovated suites. Superdome managers say newly constructed high-end restrooms on the 400-Level are comparable with those of a 5-star hotel.

"These improvements are another important step toward preserving and enhancing the iconic Mercedes-Benz Superdome," said Alan Freeman, SMG General Manager of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. "The Dome continues to be a viable and beloved home for the Saints, as well as other major events. We have a unique partnership with the New Orleans Saints and the State of Louisiana, which allows for sustaining the Superdome's status as a state-of-the-art facility."
