New Orleans Will Host The 2013 Super Bowl

 Although it is nine months away, the excitement of the super bowl is already felt in New Orleans. It is the first time since after Hurricane Katrina that the city will be the site for the championship game.

The championship game will take place in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The Superdome has recently undergone a multimillion dollars renovation.

Kelly Schulz, the Vice-President of Communication and Public Relations of New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau said the Super Bowl will be beneficial for New Orleans.

“The Super Bowl is… obviously great for the city economy, but it’s also great from an image and perception standpoint. It’s gonna bring us an unbelievable publicity. Literally the eyes of the world will be on New Orleans for that week.”

The New Orleans saints won the Super Bowl two years ago in Miami. The 2013 championship game will be the tenth time New Orleans hosts the super bowl.
Fans hope the hype will bring on another victory.
