SAINTS-BUCCANEERS GAME DETAILS & HOW TO WATCH INFORMATION

SAINTS-BUCCANEERS GAME OVERVIEW:

After a thrilling come-from-behind 27-26 season-opening victory at the Atlanta Falcons, the New Orleans Saints (1-0) host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-0) in a fight for an early edge in the NFC South race at the Caesars Superdome.

Sunday's important divisional victory in Dennis Allen's debut as head coach of the Black and Gold was the first time that New Orleans has captured four straight season openers. More importantly, the fourth quarter comeback from a 16-point deficit, the first in franchise history, gave it a crucial division win heading into the Buccaneers matchup, who started their season on the right foot with a 19-3 win at the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night.

The Saints and Buccaneers first met in 1977. New Orleans has posted a 39-21 regular season record vs. Tampa Bay, the club's best winning percentage (.650) vs. an opponent it has played a minimum of eight games against.

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS GAMEDAY POLICIES & PROCEDURES

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO:

As fans return to the Caesars Superdome, we have worked closely with local and state officials, Ochsner Health and ASM Global to develop a comprehensive health and safety plan. HERE IS OUR FULL LIST OF WHAT FANS NEED TO KNOW BEFORE ARRIVING ON GAMEDAY.

MOBILE TICKETING & PARKING:

The Saints have shifted to 100% mobile tickets and parking passes. Prior to entering a parking garage or the stadium, you'll need to present your parking pass or tickets on your mobile phone, using either the SAINTS APP or SeatGeek app. Saints ticket holders looking for more information about accessing, transferring, or selling your tickets can find more information and step-by-step tutorials on our MOBILE TICKETS GUIDE.

Reminder: Due to the ongoing renovation, Champions Square will only be available to ticketed guests. You will now be screened, and your tickets scanned at our two Champions Square entrances (LaSalle St. by Dave Dixon Dr. or Sugar Bowl Dr.) on the street level.

Once you enter Champions Square, you are now in the action and are able to navigate the full exterior of the Caesars Superdome, 360°. As a reminder, gates at the Caesars Superdome will continue to open 2 hours before kickoff and re-entry will not be permitted once you enter through the Champions Square entrances.

CLEAR BAG POLICY REMINDER:

The New Orleans Saints strongly encourage fans to not bring any type of bag. Fans will be able to carry the following style and size bag, package, or container into the Caesars Superdome:

GAMEDAY PARKING & TRAFFIC:

Due to increased security measures at NFL stadiums, vehicles parking in certain areas of Caesars Superdome parking garages will now be subject to security screenings at every home game. During the course of the 2022 NFL season, ASM will implement enhanced vehicle screening of all vehicles that pass through and park within close proximity of the building. Only vehicles parking within close proximity to the stadium will be subject to the enhanced EOD canine search. This would include guests who are parking in the A, B or C lanes of Caesars Superdome Garages 1, 2, 5 and 6 and both ADA East and West Lots. CLICK HERE FOR MORE PARKING AND TRAFFIC INFORMATION
