NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- The New Orleans Saints have sold out the 70,000-seat Louisiana Superdome on a season-ticket basis for a fourth straight year.
Saints vice president of ticket and suite sales Mike Stanfield says team officials weren't sure what to expect because of the national recession, but found no lack of demand. Stanfield says the waiting list for Saints season tickets continues to grow and is now more than 50,000.
Stanfield said a few of the Superdome's 137 private suites remain available. He says the team hopes to find enough businesses or individuals to sell those out as they did last season.
Earlier this spring, the Saints and Gov. Bobby Jindal agreed on a Superdome lease extension through 2025.
