Best Answer

It's a long story, but a professional football team in New Orleans was the dream of a local businessman named Dave Dixon. It came true in 1967, when the National Football League awarded a franchise to the Crescent City. Dixon also came up with the concept for the Louisiana Superdome, which is where the Saints have played their home games since 1975.
