New Orleans Saints tickets
The New Orleans Saints are more determined than ever
The New Orleans Saints may have a royal logo, but only recently have they started stepping towards a place among football royalty. Founded in 1966, it took almost 50 years for them to become truly competitive, with the 21st century seeing a remarkable comeback that floored some of the strongest teams in the NFL. For an exhilarating and emotionally charged football game, don't hesitate to buy or sell New Orleans Saints tickets on StubHub.
The astonishing rise of an underestimated team
The New Orleans Saints logo is a fleur-de-lis, a traditional symbol of the French royal family as well as of the city of New Orleans. Taking their name from the day of their foundation - 1 November 1966, which is All Saints' Day - they adopted striking black, white, and gold uniforms and so cut very noble figures on the pitch. Yet despite the regal aspects of their name and appearance, the New Orleans Saints struggled in the first 20 years of their existence, always finishing near the bottom of their division and not reaching the playoffs. In 1991, however, they made an incredible comeback to win their first division title, a feat that was due in large part to New Orleans Saints coach Jim Mora. A second was to follow in 2000, and then a string in the 21st century. The New Orleans Saints' best season ever was in 2009, when they won 13 games straight in a record season opening, smashed through the Minnesota Vikings in the championship game, and made their first and only Super Bowl appearance, winning 31-17 against the Indianapolis Colts. It is in exactly this same spirit of determination and hard work that you'll see the team play when you get your tickets to New Orleans Saints.
Take in an historic New Orleans Saints game
While the New Orleans Saints results haven't been quite as impressive since 2009, the team has still won the division in 2011, 2017, and 2018. A member club of the NFC South, their main rivals are the Atlanta Falcons, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the Carolina Panthers. They also have something of a regional rivalry with the Dallas Cowboys, whom they meet regularly in Texas or at the New Orleans Saints stadium in Louisiana. The 73,000-capacity Superdrome-e suffered extremely at the hands of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, receiving extensive damage from the storm and then operating as an emergency shelter, which meant that the 2005 season games had to be moved elsewhere. Upon moving back in in 2006, the New Orleans Saints fans met their team with rapturous applause for a highly emotional match - no matter how they are performing, the Saints truly are a part of the heart of this city.
