The Saints “Go Marching In” Each Fall

View All Sports

Since 1967, the New Orleans Saints have represented the Crescent City in the National Football League (NFL). The team’s name is a nod to both “All Saints Day” from the Catholic faith as well as the famous spiritual song, “When the Saints Go Marching In.” With a deep and abiding connection to their host city, the Saints enjoy a strong following across Louisiana and along the Gulf Coast. Fans display the team’s familiar black and gold colors and iconic fleur-de-lis logo and chant the famous “Who Dat?” cheer during and after football season.

The Saints made history for Louisiana when, in February 2010, the team won Super Bowl XLIV, bringing home the championship trophy. August through December on Sunday afternoons, as well as a few Monday nights, the Saints play their regular season home games in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, which seats more than 7​6,000 fans. The games are community affairs during which Saints fans avidly express their support, giving the Saints a distinct home-field advantage when playing under the dome.

Beloved throughout the region, the team consistently strives for excellence both on and off the field. Each year, the Saints volunteer their time, money and efforts toward giving back to the community through various charitable organizations, foundations and outreach efforts.
