No stranger to hosting football’s biggest event the Super Bowl, New Orleans is officially “on the clock” as preparations officially get underway to host Super Bowl LIX on February 9, 2025.

During a news conference on Monday in Las Vegas, the Las Vegas Raiders, the City of Las Vegas, the Las Vegas Super Bowl Host Committee and National Football League (NFL) Commissioner Roger Goodell handed off hosting duties to Mrs. Gayle Benson, owner of the New Orleans Saints, Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser of the State of Louisiana, City of New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell, Marcus Brown, Chair of the New Orleans Super Bowl LIX Host Committee, and Jay Cicero, President/CEO of the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation/Super Bowl LIX Host Committee. Using the phrase familiar to any NFL Draft fan, Goodell announced, “New Orleans, you are on the clock.”

The New Orleans Saints led by Mrs. Gayle Benson play an integral role in the Super Bowl LIX hosting effort. “Hosting the biggest sporting event in the world takes great teamwork and participation from our entire community and I am confident we will pull together, as we always do, to deliver the greatest experience possible for fans from around the country and world,” Saints owner Gayle Benson said. “I’m proud to stand here among these leaders on stage with me who will ensure a phenomenal Super Bowl 59 in February of 2025.”

Since 1970, New Orleans has hosted the Super Bowl 10 times, and local hospitality and business leaders are familiar with the unique challenges associated with this colossal event. Led by the experienced teams at the New Orleans Saints and the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation, the New Orleans Super Bowl LIX Host Committee is responsible for planning, executing and hosting Super Bowl LIX in February of 2025. Host Committee Founding Partner and Entergy Executive Vice President and General Counsel Marcus Brown, who serves as the 2025 Super Bowl LIX Host Committee Chair, confirmed New Orleans is ready to go, simply stating the Host Committee theme, “It’s what we do.”

“The City of New Orleans has a rich history in hosting Super Bowls – from Tom Landry in his fedora at Tulane Stadium to the storied 1985 Chicago Bears and their ‘46 defense’,” said Louisiana Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser. “It’s easy to remember what happens on the field, but as we all know, there’s a team behind the scenes working diligently for these moments to happen. I’m proud to work alongside our Super Bowl LIX Host Committee to host our 11th Super Bowl. It’s what we do best – together.”

New Orleans is a destination for culture and hospitality, which can be heard through the sounds of musicians like Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Harry Connick Jr. and Jon Batiste. It can be seen through the one-of-a-kind architecture from historic St. Charles Avenue to the French Quarter. It can be tasted through the Creole and Cajun dishes served at the hundreds of local restaurants throughout the city. New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell and her staff have been working diligently with the leadership of the Super Bowl LIX Host Committee to showcase the Crescent City to visitors and media from around the world.

“You’ll hear me time and time again say New Orleans is the perfect destination for major events like these – the Caesars Superdome sits in the middle of our downtown, only steps away from over 25,000 hotel rooms and our world-famous French Quarter, first-class dining experiences and some of the best music you can find on this planet,” said New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell. “But perhaps our greatest asset in New Orleans is our people. These events are not possible without the hard work of our Host Committee Team, the commitments from local sponsors, the men and women in our city’s services including our first responders, and the involvement of thousands of volunteers needed to create a successful event and the bustling hospitality industry.”
