Events at Caesars Superdome will not be affected by fire, including Saints vs. Giants


It is unlikely that any upcoming events at the Caesars Superdome will be affected due to the Tuesday fire that caused superficial damage to the building’s roof and gutter tub, according to the agency that manages the famed venue.

That includes the upcoming New Orleans Saints game against the New York Giants on Oct. 3, which is expected to be the team’s home opener. The team’s original home opener against the Green Bay Packers for Sept. 12 was moved to Jacksonville, Florida, after the city continued to recover from Hurricane Ida.

Final assessments of the blaze’s damage remain in progress, but the building sustained superficial damage, the Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District said in a statement, and that the fire caused no structural damage and did not jeopardize the roof’s integrity.
