A friend of mine just got notice that he will lose season tix in section 633 because they need the area for structural support. Anyone else receive a similar notice in terrace sections?

While I’m in no way affiliated with the organization nor with the architects in charge of the renovations to know with 100% certainty, I think your seats may be safe.

Sect. 102 only has 29 rows and I can’t see them knocking out over 75% of the section it would take for your Row 22 seats to become a casualty of the field level suites. Now it is a possibility still, I’d be more worried if you were sitting within the first 10-15 rows because that’s where I think the magic number will lie.

Using the Falcons’ new stadium as an example, their field suites are in both endzones and the first row in the “plaza” sections above them is Row 10. So unless they need more structural support, your Row 22 seats may be safe.
Good info, thanks!

Is this still ongoing, or has everyone losing seats been notified?

What's going in the ramp sections? How are they going to funnel everyone out the dome after the game without the ramps?
We should have only ramps and stairs. No escalators so people can get their pregame workout in. Of course still have elevators for the handicapped and unfit people.

I prefer the ramps to the escalators. However, if no ramps need something other than stairs. Older fans cannot climb stairs up to/down from the terrace.

I like going down the ramps because the escalators have lines and the ramps don't. But the ramps take up a lot of space. They are supposed to be adding in more escalators and elevators.

Yeah. I always used the ramps after the game to get those steps in after eating that roast beef grilled cheese (sucks they stopped serving that version). Work those calories off.

This stinks for all the loyal fans displaced from their season tickets, but, unfortunately, this is the price of doing business in the current NFL.

If we want to keep the Superdome while boosting revenue to ensure the team’s presence in NOLA, then this type of work is necessary. As others have said, it also keeps the city as a prime host for future Super Bowls, CFP games, and WrestleManias.
Still, the fact that removing these long-term Saints fans from their displaced season tickets seats even while it certainly has a beneficial value in terms of keeping the Super dome relevant in terms of boosting and enhancing team's revenue stream while ensuring they stay in New Orleans, its still seems like a unwelcome, hard pill to swallow, for a few.

If I was a New Orleans-area Saints fan who owned season tickets for over 25 years, long before our great, Golden Age began 15 years ago and I had some young, snarky, less than professional ticket reps call me that my season ticket seats were being eliminated via recent renovations and they behaved like complete forking butt crevasses or seemed disrespectful like a few SR posters have detailed in their own experiences in this thread, I'd probably tell them to go fork themselves and any other, naive stupid, "idealists", who would try and lecture me on how they werent worth it and that showing restraint would eventually show me as the more principled person. Oh and BTW, most times in situations like these throughout life, they still continue to screw over some people like me in a shameless, callous fashion and are likely never held to account and all we're left is this idiotic, misguided collective sense of having held "our dignity" while no one else cares anymore and has moved on.

My rep was super friendly and understanding. I trust that they will eventually do the right thing. I do hate losing my seats. Like many others, I wish they would give us some insight to what its going to look like. Those ramps they are tearing out take up a lot of space.
