NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — The New Orleans Saints prides itself in having the best fan experience in the NFL, and now fans have a chance to become even more immersed in Black & Gold culture as the franchise looks to name its new entertainment team.
On Tuesday, the Saints announced the franchise’s new cheer team roster of dancers, cheerleaders, and stunt professionals. With the announcement of the roster came the news that the team is calling on fans to help name the new squad, temporarily named “The Saints Cheer Team.”
Saints officials say team responsibilities will go beyond entertainment at Champions Square and inside the Superdome by including flag running, engaging in contests, and directly engaging with fans throughout the game.
The Saints Cheer Team makes its debut this Sunday, October 3 as the Saints take on the New York Giants in their first game in New Orleans following Hurricane Ida.
