A big win for New Orleans and Louisiana, as the Big Easy has been awarded the 2024 Super Bowl.
New Orleans officials say the last Super Bowl, in 2013, had a 480 million dollar economic impact, and Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation President Jay Cicero confirmed that the city and state had to provide an economic incentive package to seal the deal, but says we’ll easily make that money back.
“Super Bowl is by far the biggest sporting event that moves around the country that is bid upon, and there’s a certain expense that goes along with that.”
The last time New Orleans hosted the Super Bowl, the power went out, leading to a massive comeback effort from the 49ers that almost toppled the eventual champion Baltimore Ravens.
