“We don’t know how much we will need yet,” CEO of Sugar Bowl Committee told NOLA.com. "But we have been told that the cost to play is going up. We will begin negotiating this spring to compete for 2027. We cannot currently compete. That is why we are working on this.”
“But I think we can pull together and do it. We can compete on other things. We do a great parade, the way we entertain, the way you can walk to and from the Dome to anywhere. Those are things other cities cannot do.”
