The “Mercedes Benz Superdome” could seriously be named after an adult website in the future. Allow us to explain.
Stripchat, which describes itself as “one of the world’s leading adult webcam sites,” has formally announced they are bidding up to $15,000,000 for the naming rights to the Superdome.
“We have been looking into penetrating the sports world and this is a wonderful opportunity,” said Max Bennett, who is Stripchat’s communication director.
“We’d like to name it the ‘Stripchat Superdome’ and for it to be the home to the future Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints,” Max Bennett, the Stripchat Communications Director, wrote in the bid.
The existing 10-year contract with Mercedes-Benz for naming rights expires in 2021 as they have opted to focus its sponsorship on the stadium also bearing its name in Atlanta, which is Mercedes-Benz Stadium that opened in 2017.
“In our opinion, New Orleans is the party capital of the United States,” Bennett said. “It’s always been synonymous with nightlife and entertainment. It comes alive at night, with people wandering the neon-hued promenade of one the most famous nightlife strips in the world – Bourbon Street. Aside from being known for its rich Cajun cuisine, array of alcoholic drinks (The Sazerac, brandy milk punch, Pimms Cup, Vieux Carre, the French 75, the Hurricane, and of course, the Hand Grenade) and beads, New Orleans is synonymous with football. More specifically, the New Orleans Saints.
“I’d like to think that we here at Stripchat embody some of New Orleans’ character and flair. As one of the world’s leading adult webcam sites that averages over 60 million visitors per month, we know a thing or two about having a good time. We have been looking into penetrating the sports world and think this is a wonderful opportunity to do so by announcing a bid of up to $15,000,000 for the naming rights to the Superdome.”
